Sage Bass rod
Hello again.. I dont mean to be annoying but Im really struggling on making a decision on what rod to get.. Im really tempted to get the Sage Bass for some reason... can someone help me out? Is the shorter rod really a big hindrance? Will i be able to Double haul or false cast with this thing at all? the main reason im interested in this rod is because i fish bass.. and i live near lake Guntersville in Alabama, which is home to some pretty great bass fishing. But i do most of my fishing in small local ponds and this one river that runs right by our neighborhood. mostly crappie and smallmouth in there. but there are a lot of overhanging trees and tight casting spots, so i guess thats where a short rod can come in handy. for fishing the ponds, i fish from shore. would i be able to fish from shore with a 7' 11" rod?
id love to hear all the pros and cons of this rod if possible, and/or substitutes for a bass fly rod.
Thank you all!
