I'm fishing/camping the Denali Hwy this weekend, and all I have is my clunky 9wt Lamiglass. I really don't want to be stuck horsing pretty little grayling on that ogre rod. BUT I've only got about 200 to spend, 300 if I really, really scrape next week (like, eat cup noodles all week - lol!). Which I am willing to do.
My roomie MIGHT maybe MAYBE have a 6wt reel I can use. If not I will have to get a rod, reel, and line. My boyfriend got a 5wt TFO last night and it's okay, pretty stiff all around though. I think I want something with a little more play.
