So I've only been tossing salty flies for about 3 months but I gotta say, I'm hooked! I've caught a lot of SRC on spin gear in the past but I'm havin' much more fun tossing flies!! Anyway, I wasn't havin' too much luck until yesterday when I went fishing with an old friend who's much more experienced in the fly game. He took me to a beautiful spot and gave me a lot of tips on technique and his help paid off with several nice SRC! He also let me fish his higher-end gear for awhile and I could really feel the difference from my hand-me-down outfit. So I'm wanting to upgrade the rod/reel without spending the next mortgage payment. Been lookin' at reviews/recommendations on the interweb and I'm thinkin' maybe I'll buy the rod first. Kinda intrigued with the Redington Voylant (maybe 6 wt 9 1/2 ft.? Thinkin' I can use it for both SRC and coho) and wanting to know if anyone fishes it and opinions. Also, what about matching it with a Lamson/Waterworks Konic reel? I appreciate any input and recommendations! TIA!!
