Default Re: Fly rods to kill for--made for the Smokies


I have been tempted to use a 10 footer and now, by God, I am going to do just that! I have often been tempted to take my 9 footer and tie on a 7 1/2 foot 5x leader on the tip top and not even take fly line. I am sure that I would be able to reach 90-95% of the areas that I normally fish. As I am sure you are well aware, it's about stealth and fly placement. Fly line makes it to tempting to reach out too far on these mountain streams!

Many go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.
