I see, well ya shoulda told me

If you are going to Spey cast then a 14ft'er is a great all-around length. Because we typically use large flies you might pay some attention to Skagit lines and Scandinavian lines which pack all the grains into short heads and thus are prone to move more wind resistant flies. The shorter heads also allow more strip retrieving which is important to striper fishing.

I'll have to drive up with some rods and lines this summer.
