Lining a St Croix 15 foot 10/11 line rod for first timer
Hello! First post here also.
I have just gotten my hands on my first spey rod from a friend who never used this rod. Its a St Croix Avid A151011.3 which is a 15 foot 10/11 line rod.
I have never used a spey rod this size before. Lots of experience with fly fishing with one handers, lakes specifically. I live on an island so i dont anticipate a lot of river fishing but have heard of a lot of stories of catching salmon off of the shore, fishing kelp beds etc. Thought id give this a try and do have a popular river a ferry away.
I have looked up the RIO
spey line recommendations for the older rods like this one. Like the previous poster, im a little overwhelmed and not sure where to start. I have seen some of these versi-tip lines and like the flexiblity but am not sure that is a good step for a beginner. Its just the rod so i need a Reel as well but figure im going to be matching the reel to the length of line i need
Thanks in advance for the help!
