Re: Rod for Redfish
I have not fished Louisiana for reds but it sounds like my kind of fishing and I hope to some day. Based on my bonefishing and some research I have been doing and sticking in your middle price point range I would select a 9'/#8 BVK, Tim Rajeff ECHO3, Steve Bechard Rise Fishing Level Series or a previously owned Sage Xi3. I like the NRX #8 a lot but it is expensive and the Hardy Proaxis is double the cost of some of these as well. With thoes heavy flies and the cance of wind a #9 back up could be in order too and perhaps more appropriate than the 7...but I have not fished there.
