New to the sport
I recently recieved a flyrod as a gift, and am curious as to what its capabilities are.
It is a 7-8 wt., 8 foot long rod.
I am primarily looking to use it for the local stocked trout, some smallmouth and largemouth fishing, and bluegill fishing.
Is a 7-8wt rod overkill for these species, or will it work just fine? I have considered using it for the local smallmouth, and investing in a smaller (maybe 4 wt.?) for trout, bream, and largemouth. Let me know what you think.
Thanks for your input.
That rod will be overkill for both the trout and bluegill, but should be fine if you're throwing large flies for bass. I think you have the right idea to get a 3 or 4 weight to add to your arsenal for lighter applications.
