Re: Fly rods to kill for--made for the Smokies
I use several rods in the smokies, all are Scott g's. And I'm keeping them!
8' 3wt for the high country or west prong LR. 8' 4wt for middle (4 piece) or packing in to Hazel for the weekend. 8-8" 5 wt for Little River below Elkmont or maybe for Hazel as well, it has back bone to handle a large fish, if I manage to stick one. If water is high, and I am throwing alot of lead, I want a 6 wt. 8-8", maybe even a 9' - 6wt with sinking line. They're all perfect for the moment........... for me! Glass or bamboo if it makes you feel good, better feel than graphite?!
I'm for buying American in Fly rods and reels, about one a year unless my wife blinks!
