Thread: New rod options

  1. #1

    Default New rod options

    Hey guys I need some help. I wana get a new rod on the lower end of price range. I have 2 6 weight rods one with sinking line one with floating line. I live by st. Louis in IL so I fish for bass and panfish, but I try and go to some of the trout parks in mo as much as I can. With that said for trout I fish a lot of dead drift with an indicator.i do a little dry fly not a lot of room at the trout parks. So I don't know if I should go with a 4 wt or something smaller and what length will be best. For warm water fish i through a lot of streamers and top water. Thanks for all help and suggestions.

    I had a topwater 4wt from albright fly fishing that I liked. Right now they're a touch under $80. They are 7'6" bit if you're not fishing much overhead branches etc you don't need one that short. I liked it for small streams.

    Otherwise, depending on your price point, cabelas or bass pro combos could get ya what you need including reel and line.

    Do you have enough room to utilize a nine foot rod? When indobobbifloticating, one usually doesn't need to do a whole lot of overhead casts. Simple roll casts will do the job. If you have that room, by all means, get a nine foot four weight (maybe ten?). If room is tight, drop down to an eight footer or smaller.

    In the wind a 4 weight will handle better than a 3 weight.
    The take is the premier moment.
