|Up to now, when it comes to fly fishing - usually on a trout stream, my girlfriend has been rolling casting and flipping indicator rigs with my TFO Professional 6 weight and about 10 feet of line. (You be amazed at how many fish you can reach with 10' feet of line.)|
Lately, though, she has been super interested in getting a little more distance. I don't think she has any ideas about double hauling 60 feet for bonefish, but she'd like to be able to cast 20 or 30 feet of line. What would be a good rod for this? I was thinking that a moderate action rod like a Redington Classic Trout might make things easier? Or would something like the medium fast TFO Pro shorten the learning curve? (The Classic Trout flexes quite deeply into the butt; I was thinking that would help a newbie feel the rod loading and unloading.)
Any insights are much appreciated... Thanks!
