Re: Fishing the John Muir Trail in the High Sierra
I would go with an 8 1/2 foot rod. A happy medium between streams and lakes. It'll do fine on streams and you'll be happy to have the extra length for the lakes. As far as the RLS reel, if not mistaken it is a Lamson reel branded with Cabela's logo. Lamsons are nice reels. But I still tell you to go test cast rods. A local fly shop wants your business and they'll want to make you a good deal. Nothing against Cabela's, but you need to feel the rods before you buy. I can't stress that enough for you. Correction, its the WLx that's made for Cabela's by Lamson.
