Re: Trout Fly Gear Suggestions?
My buddy just picked up that Access combo and really likes it.
As far as the length is concerned, I don't think you'll miss the 6 inches if you get the 8'6". You will however notice it if you start using it in large streams and smaller rivers. Can turn out to be a real pain in the butt nymphing and mending line.
I'd consider the 5 wt as you can use it for chucking streamers at bass without issues like I do. 4 wt will give you a better presentation with smaller flies though.
The possibilities are endless I guess....that's why most of us here have more fly rods than fingers on one hand.
Good luck with the search.
