Re: 8wt or 9wt spey for stripers?
Really great article and advice. Thanks for all the help. I actually bought one of the 13'0'' 8wts from for $40 yesterday when they were having that CRAZY sale. I just wanted to make sure I made a good decision in choosing the 8wt over the 9wt. It sounds like I will make out just fine.
I think I'm going to use a compact scandi head on it so that I can still cast overhead. I don't think that will be too easy with a skagit head.
