Default Re: 8WT rod

Hi Colin.
Gary hit The Nail on The Head,you can hardly notice the difference between using an 8Wt all day & A Lighter Rod,a #8 Rod will do the job better.

Ben. I don't think you'll go wrong with a 8Wt to take to Alaska.
At one Lodge I used an 8Wt for Trout & Salmon another I used a 6Wt as I mainly caught Rainbows.
Also as mentioned there are some 7Wts with heaps of Grunt,however I'd still go for an 8Wt in a 9Ft even though I have The longer Rods,which I find are better suited for Lake use.
