Default Re: correct reel and rod wt for reds need help pls!

I throw a 8wt TFO BVK when chasing reds with a possible snook in the mix. That being said I feel comfortable fishing a 6wt fly logic when sight casting for reds. I can best any redfish in my area (nothing bigger that 36") in under 5 minutes with the 6wt. Once you get casting down the wind wont matter so much as the weight of the fly.

I can shoot the BVK farther in wind but hardly ever need to because in wind there is less visibility and distances are shorter.

Good luck!
