"Two hands are better than one!"! Right now I'm in the middle of adding 6" fighting butt/lower hand grip to all my single hand rods...
Older Fenwick fiberglass FF80, A true 7wt and can be had for around $100 and not to hard to find. Great rod that can throw some line and is a blast to fish.This discussion got me thinking about casting a short fiberglass 7 weight, and I think I like the idea. I might have to get me one of those Echo's ... or?
(I checked a few... out of my league $$-wise!)
Not accurate, less gentle presentation to spooky fish, tricky to present the fly I into tight holds within mangrove thickets. The original poster will be using the rod in Florida, and a two hander would be more useful surf casting for stripers.Why? Do you overhead cast? It's still just a fly rod. You just use two hands..
