Re: rods, reels and lines for smallies and such
im gonna be that guy...
i fish river smallies on my 5wt and never really wanted heavier
i always felt that my 8wt was better suited for putting the brakes on salmon not a 2 # bass
i really only throw streamers at bass in the summer months and have felt comfortable throwing all but the heaviest ones in my box
not trying to disagree with everyone else, its just what i do
