Hi all, I will be wrapping a flyrod for summer/winter steelhead action and wanted to know what ya'll look for in a steelhead rod. I am a long time trout angler, but a steelheading newbie. Before I buy the blank I thought I would inquire here in hopes to get some input on your tastes and preferences. I will be fishing mostly SW Washington rivers and tribs with an occasional trip to the Deschutes. I'll also be fishing it with a new BBSV Battenkill. So, if you were to build a rod for fishing steelhead in my neck of the woods, what would you go with and why? Here are some things I am trying to decide on: 1) Weight? 2) Length? 3) Action? 4) Number of sections? 5) Size of handle/butt? 6) Type of reel seat? 7) Type of guides? 8) If you prefer a name brand - make and model? I know there are some very experienced steelheaders out there so please chime in. I would really appreciate it. And if you are a newbie like me, go ahead and share with me what works for you. Thanks.
