Hi, first post, been reading a while. Two of my daughters live in the puget sound area, one in Belfair, one in Silverdale. Will be visiting there frequently and quite possibly moving to the Kitsap region in the near future. I plan to do some SRC fishing on the beaches. I'm not new to fly fishing but am new to beach fishing. I do have a fair bit of experience casting shooting heads and spey rods. I read the 6 weight shootout that Gig Harbor Fly Shop put up on their blog, but they seemed to focus mostly on the higher end rods. I wonder if anyone here has used the TFO BVK 9 1/2 foot 6 weight rod for SRC's and what you thought of the rod. Looks like it might be a good rod for the situation, and only $250. Thinking about an Outbound short with intermediate tip. Any opinions on this rod, or other $200-$400 rods in the 9 1/2 foot 6 SRC configuration greatly appreciated.
