Default Re: 12 Weight Fly Rod Questons

In retrospect if I still had the rod I would try a 10wt line on it. I don't think the rod weight was the problem but it was the rod action. It was like casting a broom stick. This was early in my fly fishing days and If a rod was rated for a specific line then that was the correct line. We have all learned a lot over the years. I lived in Indiana at the time and I bought the rod to cast big bass bugs because that is what the 'books' said was needed. I do think a 10 line would have made a big difference in the rod. I don't have a clue what happened to that rod. Probably got left behind during my divorce 25yrs ago.

Back then SA had only 3 AirCell Supreme WF lines. I probably should have put a Bass Taper on it instead of a Salt Water taper.
