On-the-water tips: The extra length of this trout-fishing rod lends itself to covering the larger bodies of water especially well; now you can reach that big boulder/ sunken tree/current line on the far side of the river, or get out past the drop-off or to weed banks if fishing lakes. If fishing in moving water, don’t only target across the water and down; also try casting more upstream, especially along current edges, then winding back at a pace that matches the lure’s progress so the lure sinks down but slack line is kept to a minimum - basically this is ‘nymphing’ with a lure and it can be very effective.
