Would a 6ft rod be too difficult for a novice fly fisherman?
Hi all, I am still pretty green when it comes to casting and fly fishing.
My favorite few creeks (from spin fishing) are really dense and thick, which makes a short rod, like a 6ft 3 or 4 wt, very appealing.
I've heard they can be significantly harder to cast than the standard 9 foot 5 wt.
Should I focus on larger and more open streams to practice on an easier rod? Would a 6 ft rod be biting off more than I can chew?
