Default Re: Best rod length for fishing in the Smokies

I think that you are going to find that a preferred length is highly personal. My favorite rod is an 8 foot rod that is really sweet. It is a slower action rod that is a lot of fun to fish. However, I use a 9 foot rod often, especially when throwing nymphs. More often than not, the extra reach is useful. I voted for an 8 1/2 foot rod because it is a good compromise between the 2 rods I fish. I would probably say that if I had to choose a rod and had any doubt, I would go longer.
