Default Re: Recommendations for a 1 wt.

Thanks for all of the input.

At the end of the day; which was yesterday, I decided to go with a 2 wt glass rod. I've always liked the feel of glass for fishing smaller trout.

I went to an Expo up in York, ME yesterday and cast 2 Hardy rods; the Aln (90% glass / 10% carbon fiber) and the Classic Lightweight (Flyweight) (10% glass / 90% carbon fiber) and the Scott rod. Of the 3, the Scott just seemed so right; in close at 5'. and out there at 35'. So, that's where I ended up.

I paired it with a Hardy Flyweight reel, DT2F line, a 6' furled leader from Joni and it's hitting the water with me tomorrow on the East Meadow River in Haverhill, MA.

Let's hope there's some action on this freshly thawed stream.
