Will be coming up in June to do some fishing. Planning on doing some fishing for the reds on the Russian. I have a 5-6 wt. I use to fish for trout in the lower 48 and plan on bringing it for that purpose. I want to try my hand at fishing for the reds on the fly.
What is the mininum wt. size rod and reel is prefered? Length of rod? Looking to purchase a 4 piece rod. Sinking line? Length of leader and wt.? Looking for an inexpensive reel that is a value for the money any suggestions since it will be used only on my trips up to Alaska.
Do you use the same set up as you use with a spinning outfit? Fly tied on and a weight about 2 ft. up? Fly suggestions and setups that you experienced fisherman use? Any suggestioins are appreciated. Thanks, dc
