I am currently building an ARE UHM 11' 3/4 two hander. Steve has rated the blank with a grain window of 175-225 grains for a scandi, 225-275 for a Skagit, and 105-135 for overhead. I don't plan on swinging much with this rod, instead I plan to use it primarily as a nymphing stick. I will be talking to Steve about a line for this rod, but thought others here might also have some thoughts about lines for this application or perhaps actual experience with this blank.
Would something like a scandi line be good for nymphing or would a WF single hand line, maybe in a 6 or 7 weight, be a good choice? I will only be doing spey casts, no overhead casting, and I don't think I will need to cast beyond probably 60 feet very often.
