Advice: if you had $500 to spend on an 8 weight rod for Great Lakes steelhead and salmon in rivers ranging from roughly 60-300 ft wide, what would you buy? Say 90% swinging, 10% nymphing. Or maybe swinging all the time...
Open to all ideas from full spey to switch, new or used, to building my own (though I've never done that before)... Just want the most for the $$.
