Default Re: what size rod for small mouth?

DrDan:

If you are having some problems (we all do, so you're not alone) with your casting when smallmouth fishing, you may want to move to a slow-med 6wt rod. This type of rod is especially usefull when flipping the larger poppers and weighted flies. I personnally prefer the Redington (now Sage) brand of rods for the smallie fishing because of their limited flex. I do not use that brand for trout though because of the flex. I normally am wading the small-medium streams with alot of overhang, which is why I personally prefer the 8'6" rod length. You personally may do well with a 9' 6wt rod. Daniel or Chris at LRO can make some very good recommendations for a rod selection.

Good luck! ><))))>
