I wanted to ask what size fly rod one would suggest for silvers. There is supposedly a good run of them here in the Nome area. Having never caught (or seen) one, I would appreciate a reccomendation on what size rod to use. I had read that an eight weight would be appropriate, but i went out yesterday and caught about 30 pinks on the 8 wt Sage I recently bought and was not impressed with its stiffness. The pinks really bent it over and I never felt like I was pulling them in that fast. I am skeptical as to what a 10-15 lb Silver would do if the pinks were bending it that good. I appreciate any insights on this matter.
