Trying out a 8' , 4 wt. fiberglass I had just finished , from one spot , 30 ++ rocks 12 " - 20 " , and 30 ++ white perch , with many over 10 ". good fishing to all

    That's some spot!

    Were you fishing at the National Aquarium in Baltimore?

    Seriously, glass fly rods are regaining popularity.

    If you are a fly fisherman you know that not all days are like that . I am not as productive with fly rod as I am with spinning rod . I have been fly and spin fishing for 50+ years . I find it harder to cover all the depths with a fly rod . when conditions are right it is a lot of fun .

    Covering all depths does take some equip. When fishing salt I take one rod with 8 wt intermediate sinking, 9wt with 350 grain sinking, and floating 8 wt. but not just reg lines some with special heads and tapers to turn over those flies. I especially like SA Titian taper for the intermediate and floating. I also use Titian in fresh on 6 and 8 wts.

    Plus one on the Scientific Anglers Titan taper. It loads easy, casts far and lands softly. It's the best line I've ever used.
