Cave Run Muskie
Please post back with your results. I took an 8 wt to Canada a couple of years ago with a group of guys. I was the only fly rod in the group and ended up fishing my ambassadeurs instead (wimped out!). I might have preferred a 10 wt to my 8 though, the little I did it I was having a hard time. Graphite 10wts might be similar to cane 8wts, but are probably lighter, and the heavier line will load easier, and resist the wind better, if it happens to be blowing. Not having owned a cane rod heavier than a 6wt I can't do more than speculate.
Please post back though, and good luck! Fellow Kentuckian here!
