Default Re: Is an 8 wt too much rod for smallmouth?

Another VA river fisher...You will never go wrong with an 8wt for smallies. My go to rod is a 6/7wt.
There are times when the wind blows down river while using big streamers, or poppers that I wish I had my 8wt with me, but for 95% of my smallie fishing the 6/7 does the job.
