    Is it wrong to be jealous? I dream of the day I can retire and the most stressful decisions of the day will be: Fly or Spinning, Acoustic or Electric. Congratulations on your upcoming retirement!

    Try a 12 or 14 bhpt stripped in slow and steady. Works for me on stocker trout in the lakes around here in KY. Bead Head Hare's Ears work pretty well too.

    hope this helps.

    Personally, I'd just take the rod I wanted to use most and be happy with the experience. Carrying two rigged rods while on the stream and trying to change between them just sounds like a pain to me....
