All good points! I say a nine-foot, nine-weight. You have more power to land and release fish quickly without trouble and more weight above the handle to beat the wind! Extra length for mending is important, but not at the cost of missing the rare strike. Just my opinion. (The rod fits in the car more easily as well)


Oh , And s Ann says, keep a few dries handy (a few dozen anyway)
