So this year I just got to using my single hand 9' rod more than I used my spin rods. It's been quite a hoot catching fish with flies that I tied myself. I've also enjoyed learning all the different casting techniques.
Naturally I dug deeper into fly fishing and am now obsessed with exploring the world of two handed rods. Since I typically lean towards unique things I have had the Loop Opti Switch Style 8107 on my sights.
A couple questions. Is this rod a good starter for two handed casting? Should I be looking at something a little longer like say 12' since I already have a 9'? As for line, is starting out with OPST commando lines easy to learn with?
“Preserving, protecting, and restoring our waters are tasks for many lifetimes, and sometimes the effort can seem overwhelming. But as long as we stay connected with all of the many, many blessings that water provides, and continue to keep that love in the forefront of our minds and hearts, as long as we remind ourselves to hope, then our stories will help connect others to water and encourage them to do what they can to help care for this beautiful Blue Marble world.”
