Default Re: First Fly Rod..

If I was going to fish smallies and large mouth more often I think I'd go with a 7wt. If steelhead are the main target -- 8wt for me. I just got an 8wt and while I was in the market i looked on Craigslist and found a couple nice used rods. I'm not a big supporter of Craigslist but the couple guys I talked to were more than willing to let me cast the rod and share information. Might be a good alternative to Cabelas.
Good luck
