Re: Sage FLi and Launch Fly Rods
I use a 7' 4 wt superfine that is a mid flex 5.5 for the small streams here. As far as my experience to casting it I have no problems due to length as most of the "small" streams I fish are 30' wide or less. The longer rod would make it easier to roll cast or mend the line but really between the two, IMHO, its more a matter of personal preference. However I wouldnt consider a 7' stick that was a fast action or tip flex. Although in my experience they do a better job roll casting, however with a tip flex, I cant seem to get the rod to load up on the small streams.
A bad day of fishing beats a good day at work..
