My dad taught me how to fly fish when I was 12 or 13 years old, I've really been thinking about buying a combo but can't make a decision because I don't know enough about the weight and length and how that plays into casting etc. I am an avid fisherwoman, mostly use baitcasters ( ABU Garcia Ambassador and a BP Pete Mainia Musky reel, both on Ugly Stiks) I do have an old Cardinal 4 spinner I use on occasion. Fish alot off of my kayak.
There is an awesome river right behind my house (Whitewater) that is full of small mouth bass and trout. Could wade, lots of shallow fast moving water, mostly gravel bottom. Also wondering if I could give fly fishing a go off my kayak on the reservoir I fish at alot. My budget is about $300 bucks for a combo. Was checking out the Reddington Crosswater. Any advice is appreciated!
