  5. 9′ 8wt for Reds around Charleston, SC or a 9′ #7 for carp anywhere and everywhere or a 9′ #4 for cutthroat around WY. I’m in one of these places or somewhere in between at any point in the day. At least in my mind.

  6. I’m just a broke college kid living in the kenai peninsula of Alaska I would use this rod every day i didn’t have class to go get me a some big buck bows and I could loan out my other rod to friends who don’t have one to alow them to enjoy and understand peace and person challenge of fly fishing in this great state.

  13. I’d be equally thrilled with a 9 ft-5# for trout in the Ozark tailwaters or a 9ft-6# for stream smallie’s in the same region (if my aging truck will get me to the river) — SURPRISE ME!! πŸ™‚

  14. A 9ft, 5wt would be perfect for the Green River or the Bighorn. But I have a float trip tentatively planned for the Wind in April so that would be my first, best chance to throw some line.

  15. I’d fish the 7wt H2 on the American for steelhead during the spring run. Spend some time with it on the yuba chasing the steel and take a road trip to the trinity with it.
