That is the best solution. I bought my first two handed rod (Sage brownie) 25 years ago and still fish with it 90% of the time. The 6 weight is a custom rod and a gift to me from my late father. I feel guilty letting it collect dust but not as guilty as I would feel if I broke it doing something stupid. Maybe I should save it for special trips and back off the grain weight. i have plenty of dusty single handed rods to experiment with. Thanks for your input.
