Re: For Bonefish, Bass and surf 8wt rod
The reason it helps to know where you will be fishing is that bonefishing tackle encompasses at least as much variation relative to habitat as trout fishing does. For example, you are visiting West Palm and what?, booking a guide in Biscayne Bay, voyaging to Bimini or driving to Islamorada? Very different situations. Wading or fishing from a skiff, different too. The more we know the more help we can offer. I will say though that you have good taste in potential tackle choices but line weight and reel choices factor in here too. Rarely is the same rod great on flats as well as for chucking big flies for bass.
