Default Re: Length rod

I have found that my 6' 5wt is much less stressful to cast over a long day than my 8 1/2' 5wt. If I have an open casting area and I am intending to cast 50 to 60' all day I would probable pic the longer rod. If there is a lot of overhead tree conapy I would try to make a little shorter casts and choose a shorter rod. I have found it to be tuff fishing with my fly in the trees. I really like my short rods on the creeks but all my salty rods are 9'. The right tool for job.

I have never done a search but I bet a 8' 10wt is quite scarce other than custom built.
