Re: redington predator?
Well, I use a 6 wt. 9' Predator here in the PNW for saltwater beachfishing, both for sea-run cutthroat and coho.
Here in the Puget Sound and Hood Canal we're on fairly big water and often tryin' to punch through pretty good wind.
My floater is a Rio Power Fly and my intermediate is an Airflo 40+.
Both work well but the 40+ seems to load the rod much better which makes my less-than-perfect casting much easier.
I'm really likin' the Predator!
Just my 2¢!
