This rod is great for fishing from a drift boat or casting on bigger rivers where wind and distance come into play. The 8'6" 6wt is a rod that we fish the Missouri, Madison, Yellowstone, etc with when we're floating. The 866 casts hoppers, nymphs and small streamers easily yet has a sensitive enough tip for casting small dry flies. Compared to the 906, this rod would be a little more suited for dry flies with the tighter loop made when casting shorter rods. This rod is done on a clear blank with uplocking hardware, a full wells grip, and a beautifully figured spalted box elder reel seat insert. Serial Number 22-6-05
