Default Re: 7 foot vs 10 foot bass fly rods

I do some bass fishing from a canoe and I prefer rods from 8' to 9'.Longer rods feel heavier and put more pressure on your wrist,especially something like an 8wt.Shorter rods are much more accurate for casting to small spots like an opening in the pads or under bushes.I fish an 8' 6wt glass rod thats great for this.My favorite 8wt is 8'8" and I use this for my saltwater game.If you decide to go with a longer rod,make sure you cast before you buy and cast it with the flies you intend to use.
