Default Re: Switch Rods

Sorry for the long delay in responding, just saw your posting. First, for the type of fishing you've described the 8wt will be total over kill. A 6wt would be the top end unless you've got some seriously large fish to deal with.

For Jollies, Google ACR fly rods (Gary Anderson) and click on what he calls his 'trouters.' Good description of what light 2-handers (line weight) are appropriate for a given size of fish/fishing conditions.
