Default Re: Salt Water Rods?

Yea, my salt "virgin" status is the reason for the 11 weight line to start off. I have a Sage XLT 3 wt and an SLT 5 wt for trout fishing here in NM, which are a little slower action than the Xi2. Chuck thinks the heavier line will load the rod a little better for me while I get used to the action. His insistence on meeting me at a park for casting lessons tells me they want customers to do well.

Now I have to get busy whipping out a few flies before my trip to TX. Will probably start out with a few clousers and decievers in different colors. We've had our place on Galveston Bay for about 30 years and I'm familiar with the colors of jig tails/grubs/kokahoe minnows that work best. Figured I'd tie some flies in the same colors. Would I be on the right track to start off?
