Rod Weight vs. Fly size
I am going to buy my first fly outfit soon, and am thinking about getting a 8 1/2 or 9' St. Croix Avid rod in four or five weight. I know fly size has a lot to do with the weight rod you use. the largest "fly" I will use will probably be a #6 or #8 wooly bugger, but I also plan on throwing small nymphs and dry flies. The size of the streams I intend to fish range from 25 feet wide to 100 feet wide, and several have overhanging limbs. What do you think would be the best combo?
