Default Re: Odd or even number rods?

2wt, 3wt, 4wt and 5wt. Never had a bigger fly rod. But I'm thinking on an 8wt to fish New River with. I want to hook a big Musky that I know are there on a fly rod. I fear I'd be taking a swith to a bear fight with a 5wt. I have caught two on spinning rods and I think an 8wt would put in about in the correct rod zone for Musky..or perhaps a big stripe'er. Them Stripe'ers can put you on an enormous battle. Since this rod would be used as a workhorse, I might go toward a good, but not pricey rod,,maybe something in a TFO or St Croix. A seven weight might handle the fish but I think the 8wt would toss big ol' feathery creatures farther.
