Default Re: Question regarding oversize rod for smaller flies?

The main thing is line slap. I can cast a size 20 fly a country mile with my 8-wt. That said the line is a lot heavier. When a size 8 line hits the water it hits with a lot more force than my size 3. The bass I fish for don't mind, but small stream trout might get spooked.
