Anyone out there have suggestions on a rod that might be suited for fishing the tribs of Erie? Something that would be good for rollcasting yet still be able to cast overhead for surf and such things.

Oh and Hello! Im a first time poster long time lurker and new to world of Spey (Something tells me Ive got another set of reasons to buy more rods I probably dont need but defineately do want :) )

Welcome to the board.

You need to tell us a little abut what you hope to fish for, the flies you might be casting, distance, etc.

Since you are new to spey, get some instruction and get to a clave in your area. Both will shorten the learning curve and reduce the frustration. It will aslo give you a chance to try a lot of rod/line combinations to get a feel for what you might like best.

If you get the chance stop at Oak Orchard Fly Shop, they probably have the most local experience with spey rods on the erie tribs.

There are claves coming up on the Cattaragus, Salmon River, and Grand River in Canada. You should try to get to one ......or all :smokin: .

Erie Tribs Rod?

Hi
(As Bubba once said):Welcome to the show that never ends!
A good bet would be a G.Loomis Stinger, 7/8 or 8/9, 12'6", These are excellent for redirected roll casts as well as over-head. With a shooting head set up you should be able to cover all you need.
Good Luck
