Great news!

Will be heading back to Scotland in a couple years. Just got the heads up from the family. What kind of rods, lines, flies do you think will do. I have a 14ft 7wt and a 11ft 6 in 5wt but i belive those are too short and too light.
Thanks,
Nick

Can you fish a full dress on a skagit head?

I am certainly not an expert- but folks who knew steered me to a 15 foot 10w for the Spey.

where in Scotland are you headed? that should help you decide, check with the experts in that area.

http://www.salmonfishingforum.com/forums/forum.php has a lot of local information.

"The true purpose of a fly rod is to prevent its bearer from being arrested for vagrancy, for the delight of trout fishing is not the full creel but things seen and people met. A roughly dressed man idling with a rod in his hand is an angler; without it he is a vagabond." Sparse Grey Hackle

nice - if you haven't - you might want to look at some of the DH bamboo rods that sometimes get discussed on the "clarks" classic fly rod board
