Default Re: 6wt for kayak fishing

FWIW,I use a 6wt quite a bit here in DE for trout,flounder,stripers and blues in the salt.Lots of fun and perfectly adequate as long as you know its limits.If you keep your tippet around #15 a 6wt will whip some pretty good fish quickly.Most of the flies I use are size 2 and these work well on a 6wt.If you do tag into something too big for the rod you will know it right a way and can break it off.Ive landed stripers in the #10 range and carp over #12 with a 6wt and never stressed the fish.If you know how to fight a fish a 6wt a nice light tool to play with.

I should add that Im throwing 7wt lines most of the times with the 6wt.
