Default Re: Spey weight for largemouth

I use a 5wt. sometimes for LMB, if I'm casting nothing larger than a woolly bugger and I know I won't be casting near submerged vegetation. Otherwise, I use an 8wt. Even then, when I know there's a good chance of large fish, and with some of the bugs I cast, I'd consider going larger if I had something larger and not too long. Consider the size of the flies you want to cast and other factors, besides size of the quarry, when choosing rod weight for bass fishing.
