Here’s a funny, we casted the fly rod all day, then we go to Sedro-Woolley for the 4th and there’s a carnival going on. They had a little pond to fish in and win stuffed animals with conventional gear, he took the rod and was casting like it was a fly rod....or he was trying to snag one lol
Awesome. Enjoy every minute, and pack your patience for those wind knots and tree hookups
My 6'6" 2 wt was too light for my girls. Tough for them to feel the load.
I put a DT4 on my 7'6" 3wt and they started to get it before i said fk-it, and got them 9' Tenkara. Less tangle, easier to control....they fish now.
