Default Re: 7 weight rod

I tend to agree with the recommendation of an 8wt. I use mine when throwing bigger flies for smallmouth and largemouth bass. I have also used it for pike fishing on those rare occassions. I don't fish for steelhead but have a couple of buddies who make a couple of trips to the Brule in northern MN and both of them use 10' 8wts. They have recently moved to using an 11' 8wt switch rod.
