Sounds wonderful, a real challenge. Would you fish it with a cane rod? What weight?
Love both fly fishing and fly tying, been doing it for a while
But not much good at either

Hi Barry,

I hope I understood your question correctly.

Fly size and weight dictates which line weight should be used. These flies are mostly tied on hooks ranging from 16 to 10 and are not weighted. So you can use anything from a 3wt to 6wt line, so any rod independent of material (bamboo, glass or carbon fiber) rated for those line weights is OK.

However, since line mending - meaning repositioning the line to suit the current and to achieve the desired presentation is equally important as the casting a rod length from 8,6ft to 9,6 or even 10ft is a bit easier to work with than the typical 7,6 to 8ft bamboo. But is just my personal preference. I having said that, I enjoyed very much fishing with a fast 7,6ft for a 5wt line. I must addd fast bamboo rod.

I hope this was helpful and nit too confusing.
