Say you were looking to throw tips on the Sandy during the winter, and your beloved Scott 1509, a fine friend in all weathers, seemed just a bit too much stick to carry around all day. Besides, though you've been casting long belly lines, you want to explore skagit style casting. Which of Bob Meiser's rods would you pick, in combination with what lines? (In a private email Bob has given me a range of choices, and I thank him very much for that; but I did want to get some ideas the rest of you.) Thanks.
