I had some guests up in alasaka this summer who were insistent on catching silvers on their 00 wts. They did. They were throwing a size 8 streamer on those rods. Mind you - the casting wasnt pretty.........but they got out enough to catch silvers. Talk about a sight to break up the usual guiding days events....

Later on in the week the guides went out, after their normal few bottles of wine....and were having distance competitions with the 00wts. Again, not pretty.....but they will cast a fair amount of line. I surely wouldnt want to try and fish one in the wind though......there just isnt enough mass there to do much

Disclaimer: I am not advocating that one should use a 00wt fly rod to catch Coho salmon.
