Default Re: 6 wt bass fishing

My bass and carp fishing is more and more using a 6wt 7'10" instead of my 8wt 9ft when I am on my kayak or on foot for small ponds or lakes. I will take my 8wt for big windy stillwater reservoirs.

Default Re: 6 wt bass fishing

I use a bamboo 5 wt mostly unless I expect something over 4 pounds. I certainly can't cast big windsock poppers or streamers very far but most bass I've caught regardless of cast have been out around 25 feet "or so".
A big one is a lot of fun on a light rod

I recently switched to a 2wt rod for basically everything but carp and saltwater. There's a lot of fallacy out there in regards to casting larger flies with lighter lines. Sure I can't sling out 2/0 deer hair poppers very far with a 2wt, but I can get some damn surprising distance with a size 6 beadhead streamer. And like I said before, how far do you really NEED to cast.

A 1lb bass is a hell of a lotta fun on a 2wt.
