Yeah, that's my understanding, also. I'll be using two 9wts and a Scott HP 8.5' 10 wt. All with reasonably light reels. Even though I know the strength of the peas from many previous experiences, I have yet to bring in one over 20# on the fly rod; 18# probably my biggest so far. I'll be fishing with a 20# breaking system as I would rather lose the fish than lose the rod. For practically all my Amazon pea fishing, I was fishing as a single fly rodder, but now I have a partner fly rodder and will welcome not having to cast all day without a break...getting a little long in the tooth, yah know. Also, as I'm expecting a number of very large peas, I will, for the first time, be wearing some kind of glove to prevent the many line burns I've had in the past.
