Fly rod wight

2 posts in this topic

For those of you that fly fish for smallies in this part of the river, what is your fly rod weight of choice? A friend of mine states that an 8/9 weight is the only way to go, but I have read that a 6/7 is just fine. I currently have a 9 ft. 6 weight, and am deliberating on buying a heavier setup, that is if I really need a 8/9 rod.Any thoughts/recommendations?Thanks.

Sorry for the typo in the title,should be weight,not wight.

Hey Huskiedevle! Welcome to the forum.
I'd have replied sooner, but I just read your post.
I've got a 7 weight, and I think it does just fine for all-around use. Panfish, trout, bass, even boated a 35 inch muskie with it once.
I'm sure there are folks out there who can tell you more about flyrods than I can, but
all I can say is I would try it, and see if it suits your needs. There will always be time to spend your money later.

Good Luck!
