Thumbs up For a place to start.

Take a peek in the classified section; what you want may already be there. Next question is what kind of line(s) do you want to toss; that probably will impact the rod choice.

If you are thinking Vedder like your location suggests I would recommend a 7 or 8 wt sometimes you need to throw heavier stuff there in the cold months. More versatile if you decide to go after critters other than steel as well.

I have used a Scott LS2 1307 for my Vedder rod over the years and found it to be just enough to throw the junk you need there.

Good luck and welcome to the game.

Rod

Have you considered a switch rod, I have a new Echo SR 81010 tube and sock, I bought the rod new, never been fished, just cast a couple times on our local pond, been in the closet for two years.... I'm selling for $165.00..,,

I love my Echo 8 wt for winter fishing (small coastals) with a 480 skagit switch and it really rocks with a 480 Rage for windy days in the summer (Deschutes).
