Re: Rod Length Controversy
yeah i used to like shorter rods the way they feel etc then i was convinced by a friend of mine and flyshop owner to use some longer rods on our tailwater trout for easier mending and dealing with difficult currents. now im definitly sold on them for those situations. still like a short rod on small streams and such but for tricky currents nymphing mending etc a longer rod does a great job. i own four nine footers now in four through 7 wt and only one 7 1/2 4wt one 8ft four wt and a 81/2 3wt.
