Default Re: Bass Fly Help

I fish mostly small creeks (warmwater only) with a 2wt and I target bluegill and SMB because that is what is mostly there. I use streamers up to #2 and some clousers with small lead or beadchain eyes up to #6 with little trouble. Poppers up to 8 or even 6 don't cast too bad either. Your 5wt should handle at least flies up to these sizes. I am useing a 3wt double taper line on a 6' rod. I started years ago using level lines and when I got rich enough to start getting tapered lines I went straight to WF lines and had never had a DT line until this line and I like it a lot. I am thinking about putting a DT on my 5wt as well. Lots of hype about WF lines but I sure like this DT line. Use that 5wt until YOU decide that a different rod is needed.
