Default Re: Define a "Technical Rod"

When I think technical I'm thinking dry fly fishing on water that is smooth as glass for big fish eating small flies.
I'm thinking a big brown under an undercut bank that will spook if he even thinks you are dreaming about him sipping on mayflies.
Long, light leaders with flies thrown 60 feet that land on the water with no ripple. And then BAM!!!! FISH ON!!!
A rod that flex's so much the tip can touch the butt to protect that 6x tippet your fishing.

“Fishing for me, as funny as it sounds, is sorta my brand of praying almost. I’m never closer to my spirituality than when I’m in the act of fishing.” - JT Van Zandt
