Some friends and I are thinking of going camping along the Housy near the fly shop in West Cornwall. I have never fly fished in freshwater. I have a few questions:

1. Would my medium action 8wt be way too much rod for the smallies? I could probably rent a smaller setup if need be.

2. Are there any quick tips you could offer in terms of how to present your offering. I would think I would stick to sub-surface patterns being a beginner?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
