RE:largemouth on the fly
What I have found is the more expensive rods so not cast the slower lines line bass bug taper and ind resistant flies like the cheaper whip like ones. I dont mean Walmart or Kmart brand cheap rods, but the lower lines of Orvis and St Croix. The Orvis Clearwater series is wonderful for wind resistant SLOW cast. However, the St Croix L.U. has a faster action, I dont throw big flies with this one, but the Imperial and Pro Graphite are better for slower line speeds. You can get a Clearwater rod for about 140$, This is cheap when compared to some rods. I may build a rod one day, I once tried to get a custom made Orvis Trident, but the dont sell the blanks. Does anyone know why?
