I use 6# Fireline ulta , 4# leader # 10 wooly bugger, one tiny split shot.
Yes, the Teton would work fine for this if it was just longer. Looking forward to the arrival of the new rod.....


You'll like the 762L Leadership then. It can launch an 1/8 oz anything into low earth orbit.

Excellent! It shipped today so I should have it within a week or two.
Our tradition is that of the first who sneaked away to the creek when tribe did not really need fish

The 762L Leadership arrived today- Excellent quality- no imperfections and rod feels great. Mounted a Tatula equipped with BFS spool and 6# Fireline Ultra 8. This rod launches 1/4 oz further then I need quite easily.
Will see how it feels on 3-4# trout later in the week.

Does it fit the bill? Is it the rod you were looking for?
