All good stuff and totally agree with Juro - its all on the reel

Mind you, my first trip I used a sci anglers system 2 and it worked fine except for the drag dropping into freespool a couple of times

I fished a 9wt on just about every trip and never really felt overgunned. Almost all of my trips have been early spring in the Bahamas and it tends to be pretty windy then.

A 7wt would be a delight throwing Pflueger Hoys to tailers as the sun touches the horizon
When sight fishing, look over your shoulder from time to time, you never know who's behind you
