Re: thinking about a second rod
If fish that size are your 'target' I'd recommend a rod 12' 6" to 13' 6" (max) in a 9 (or 10?) wt. A 25 # fish will require a rod that you can really put the muscle to it. Zip over to the classifieds here and on the SpeyPages web board. Lots of rods for sale at the moment.
Edit: Just noticed this was your second post; welcome to the group.
