Default Re: Streamer Rod

Thanks for all the help. I already have an 8wt with clear intermediate sink tip line. I think that between my 5wt and 8wt ill be fine. I mainly fish for bass and panfish, and I usually take 7 or 8 trout trips a year. Ill take the occasional salt water trip. Can I reach all of the situations that I will encounter with these rods?

I use a 6 wt BVK with Type VI full sinking line for "dedicated" streamer fishing. I call it "dedicated" because you gotta be dedicated to fish that way. I lose interest after a couple hours of chucking, jerking, and striping. Maybe after I hook a big one, I'll become more dedicated to this type of fishing.

My next rod down is a 4 wt.

As long as your 5 weight is relatively fast with a little backbone, I think you have streamers covered unless you really want to buy another rod.
