Question about 10wt

Rate this topic

2 posts in this topic

I have a 10wt penn battle, ordered a 8wt and when the 10 arrived I said whatever Ill keep it. Is this suitable for puppy drum, trout and schoolies up to 7 or 8 pounds? Or is it too big?We seldom get stripers over that where I fish in the elizabeth river.

It really depends on how much of a 10wt this particular 10wt really is.  It's listed a medium fast action.  It will throw a heavier line which will help when it is windy or you want  use big flies.  The fish you listed certainly don't need a 10wt but I would probably keep it since it was not really expensive.  Get good with it and then get a 8wt next time around.
