    Re: Bran New to Fly Fishing.

    If you only plan to have a rod for a variety of applications, a 6-weight is very versatile. I suggest a bar between eight and nine feet long. Yes, with the line of the bar. Use a weight forward floating line for freshwater stream and pond situations.

    Re: Bran New to Fly Fishing.

    I have to second some of the advice you are getting here. If you only plan on ever fishing for Bass and Panfish, I would go with at least a 6 weight. Hell, I'd even go for a 7 weight.

    I know a small bluegill on a 7 would feel like a fish on a broom stick, but you'll appreciate the power in the end. I use my only rod, a 5 weight for occasionally throwing poppers, and big bass bugs. My range is relatively short and the water I can reach is limited because of it. Now I'm not dedicated, and mostly do it because I want an hour or so throwing flys. Personally I like throwing Poppers the most, so I bigger rod would definitely be of benefit. Besides, if you throw bigger bugs, you just might get bigger fish. I got the biggest blue gill of my life on a big ole woolly bugger.

    7 days without fishing, makes one weak.

    I wonder if this still holds true being it's been slightly over 4 years since this thread was started.

    I think he's a bot or a prankster. All he does his spit back a previous post with a couple of thesaurus-ed words. He sounds like the European guys from Family guy.

    You're sharp, DC. I was wondering how a newbie would have a July 2007 join date.

    Re: Bran New to Fly Fishing.

    Yeah, this thread is 4 years old, which means that bran is NOT new to fly fishing, at least not that new.

    Corn niblets, now those are really old.
