Re: BIG Bass fly casting help
Another thing to consider is what you are throwing into. For some places I fish, a 6 is just fine. For others, with heavier cover, an 8 is necessary to be able to horse them out of the sticks. I have a 9 that I use in some situations, but not very often.
I'm usually making shorter casts, so I just use straight mono for leaders. Again, you take your conditions into account for line wt.
For me, in OK, with our conditions, if I had only one rod, it would be an 8.
