Re: Anyone trending upward in rod weight?
this is a good read. I started off with a 5/6wt then got my 10ft 8wt for flinging bass bugs and larger flys. I actually like how my 6wt line casts on that 8wt rod better then the 8 wt line.. tho my 8wt is bass taper and that may be a factor. I like the larger rod for its wind beating ability and being 10ft, it gets over tall grass well enough. I just sold my cheap 6wt rod so untill I complete my Allen collection and get a 6 wt to use with my 6wt line, the long rod will have to do.
