Default Re: dry fly hook size on 5 wt.

I agree with Joni on the size range, with the exception that you could throw hoppers and such size 6 and 8 if need be, thought casting them far might be tough. A 6 wt would be more ideal for flies that bulky.

Just trying to say that if you regularly need to throw big hoppers, you can do it with your 5wt, and don't need to buy a heavier rod.
