Default Re: Wet Fly Rod?

Here is a response to very similar thread in regards to rod configuration for soft hackle wet flies.

Use whatever length rod is conducive for the water being fished.

Here is a list of my wet fly rod arsenal. I happen to use them for other techniques as well.
8'3" 3 weight
9'0" 4 weight
9'0" 5 weight
11'9" 6 weight Spey - Traditional Steelhead patterns are wet flies.

By the way. Wet fly style fly fishing is alive and strong.

Edit: As for your questions for what would be good for this technique. Get a rod that feels comfortable casting all day. Your shoulder will love you for that. Maybe like a Winston B3X 9'0" 4 weight?
