Alasdair contact me on my Instagram page wanting to know what sort of weight of rd and lines I saw fishing as he was thinking about moving lighter weight. Happy to help so here is a rundown of why fish different rods and wights for different waters and fishing styles. A rod should be part of you when its right and be thing you love to fish with! Tight lines hope this helps. You can contact me through my Facebook page just send a friend requested, subscribe and like page. Have a look on iTunes, YouTube and Vimeo there is more stuff there and send me Q’s for the podcast.
