Default Re: 6 wt bass fishing

I recently switched to a 2wt rod for basically everything but carp and saltwater. There's a lot of fallacy out there in regards to casting larger flies with lighter lines. Sure I can't sling out 2/0 deer hair poppers very far with a 2wt, but I can get some damn surprising distance with a size 6 beadhead streamer. And like I said before, how far do you really NEED to cast.

A 1lb bass is a hell of a lotta fun on a 2wt.
