Re: Woolie Buggers and Slower Rods
I have fiberglass rods from 3 to 9wt
The 3 and 4wt rods are "dry fly only". The 6 and 7wt rods are all around fishing tools. And the 8 and 9wt rods are cannons with any fly that you care to fling.
Trying to cast a fly that's too heavy for the rod is more frustrating than it's worth. I'm out there to have fun, not to be a casting hero, so I when I head out the door, I choose the proper tool for the job.
