Re: reel sizing for us warmwater guys:)
New guy here.
I normally put a number two reel on a 5-6-7 wt rod and a 3 on a 7-8-9 wt rod etc. but a recent foray into the world of split bamboo is making me think about another aspect of the fly fishing "system" and that is balance. An example would be my Phillipson 9' 6wt. It's a heavy rod compared to my graphite sticks. When I put a #2 reel on it it feels mighty front heavy with a #3 it seems much better..
