I have decided to build a 7 weight ten footer. That would be a good choice for stillwaters and for bigger trout in rivers Kuusinki, Kitka and Oulanka. Picture below is from upper Kitkajoki.
Stillwater fly fishing is something that is relatively new to me. With 7 weight rod I should be able to use fast sinking lines and rigs of multiple flies. I think that I will subscribe Trout and Salmon or some other UK fly fishing magazine. They seem to know a lot of stillwater fishing in UK. I will also need to tie new sets of flies - mainly for stocked rainbow trout but also something for pike.
