Not for Everyone:  I have a river near my home that holds trophy smallmouth, large Northern pike, and scary muskellunge!  That’s the good news, the bad news is that it is a narrow river and it’s best to fish it from a boat.  What’s needed to get the job done is a short, powerful rod able to cast large flies. 

 

Years ago I came across such a rod, the Cross Sylph, a wonderful 7ft. 6-7 wt. that cast like a dream.  I took the numbers from an original Cross Sylph and added 4 inches, played around some and came up with a taper for small, tight waters, big flies and even bigger fish! 

 

This rod casts OK with a 5 wt. line and pretty well with a 6 wt. line.  When I test cast a 7 wt. line, the rod cast quicker and farther — 65-70 feet was no problem!  Better yet this taper does just as well close in and due to its short length, 7’4″, lands good fish quickly.  I call the taper #88. 

 

This taper is also available in a 7’6” length which I call “The Island Pool.”
