8' 6" Or 9" ? 2 Or 4 Piece?
Posted 26 May 2012 - 10:42 PM
I currently have a 9'6" 8/9 wt fiberglass rod which is huge for the fishing I plan on doing. I will keep this one for my trips to the Mirimichi! The poor little perch that I practically tossed clear of the river when I tried to set the hook would attest, its too big of a rod for smaller bodies of water!
My second rod is a combo fly/spinnig set up by crystal river. This kit just sits in the back of the 4 wheeler, doesn't get much use, but its handy to have. As a fly rod, its awfully weak to start out on!
I'm looking at a St Croix rod Triumph rod, and I am unsure of a few things! I think that an 8'6" 5 wt would be ideal, but still thinking back to the 9', and wondering if I should go up to 6wt. I think that I like the idea of a 4 piece rod as well, the smaller size makes it easier to pack up for travel etc. Do they perform any differently than a 2 piece rod?
I live about 5 mins from the Hammond river, and thats about the biggest body of water I will fish with this rod.
