    Default New member from Iowa

    Hello, new guy from eastern Iowa (Quad Cities). Just found the forum and started fishing the Northeast IA streams with my St Croix Reign 9ft 5WT. Already figured out it is a bit large for these waters. Havin fun anyway.

    The 9' may be a touch long, but my favorite rod for fishing the Driftless is a 8'6 5wt, so you're not too far off. Welcome to the forum.

    Welcome to the forum, great to have you posting with us. On those windy days in the early season you may find that your 5wt will come in handy.

    Appreciate the welcome guys. Looking forward to fishing and asking questions real soon. I'm just about over these 100 degree fall days. Time for some fishing weather.

    Just a thought, go back into your user CP and plug in your general location. Many great questions really are locationaly pointed. Knowing where you're at really helps.
