recommendations for the spey rod
Hello, my name is Max. I fish on the fly last 25 years, but I never tried spey flyfishing. I intend to fish big salmon like fish on the river Drina in Bosnia and Herzegovina. That fish is the same as the Mongolian Taimen, and weight ranges from 7 to 50 pounds and more, the most common examples are from 20 pounds.
I have a questions. Which class of spey rod I should get, how long should be. Drina river, in average, is 100 meters wide, it is fast, the rapids are 1 to 3 meters depth. Is it 9/10 class rod enough, or 10/11? 14 feet or 15 feet? I wish to put big streamers down to the bottom, what kind of line I should get?
Thanks in advance
