Response to speyman
Those recommendations are the ones that the line company's and most designers suggest and experts in the field say. However, it is a matter of what works for you... And I agree sometimes if it works so be it... But it may matter if you are throwing sink tips with heavier flies .... But like you I know when it feels good. For me when use an overhead line bumping up 2-3 weights helps me feel the load better.... Hopefully some experts will jump in on this post with their input.
PS. I see Poppy at Red Shed had posted, which I didn't see.... Sorry about that... He is an Icon the spey world.... If you have any questions call him.....
