Default Re: Anyone trending upward in rod weight?

For me (out in the eastern appalachian mountains) the 5wt gets most of the work. Good range and with both a mid and full flex I have 2 good tools to cast nearly all of the sizes and patterns (beads/wire/feathers/hair) I need.

I step it up to a 6wt tip flex/streamer for larger/heavier bass fishing.
Further for carp/stripers/shad with a 7wt
I go down to 4wts and 3wts for brookies and pan fish.

I've been told that an 8'6" 4wt is the only rod you need around here. I see the logic in that.

So I guess I DO tend toward the heavier wt as my go to.
