Wow! Much Better
Thanks to all of you for the advice and it was worth it.
I went to LRO Saturday and I decided on a TFO 4pc 5wt 8'.6" rod with an Orvis 5/6 reel. The Bar Stock II was out of stock.
The setup felt so good and I couldn't believe how light everything was.
I took my new setup fishing Monday afternoon, and even though I caught no fish I could believe howmuch better the TFO and Orvis equipment worked compared to my old Bass Pro outfit.
I have to say I love the 4pc I can safely store my rod underath the nack seat of my truck and no one nows its there.
