Re: Old Timer New Fly Fisherman, Equipmemt ID
Since the rod came from a chain store and came with the SA System I reel, most likely it's a Scientific Angler rod as well.
Probably sold as one of their "Concept" combos.
Based on the fact that's of a certain age and it's an 8 ft rod, I would have to guess that it was made to handle a 5wt line.
In a combo like that, a 7.5' rod would most likely be a 4wt and a 9' rod could be a 5,6, or 8 weight, but an 8' rod is almost certainly a 5wt.
