I have a five day trip to the Kenai planned which will include 4 days of guided river fishing and a fly-in trip. It will not be a fly fishing specific trip, although I do want to include some fly fishing. I don't want to over burden myself with equipment since I will be able to use a lot of the gear from the lodge. I want a compromise rod which will cover a lot of fishing.
I plan on taking my nine and a half foot seven weight St. Croix rod with a wide arbor reel and a multi-tip seven weight line. I also have an additional spool for this reel which holds a Teeny 7-wt Tandem line (the Tandem has a Teeny Mini Tip at one end and a Long Shot Floating tip at the other end).
I am hoping, since this will not be a fly fishing specific trip, that the seven weight will cover a lot of useage. I don't expect to target Kings on the fly since this would not be fair to the other anglers fishing with me.
Am I correct in thinking that my 9.5 foot 7-wt rod will cover a lot of fishing opportunities along the kenai (Kings excluded)?
