I am thinking of getting a rod to through in my suitcase when I travel and I like the idea of the LL Bean 9 piece fly rods. I think I want a 6 weight - a little heavy for trout and maybe a little light for the big bass I hope to catch but in general it should work for most applications. Has anyone cast one of these rods? I am not the best caster for sure so that plays into the account as well.
