Setup I’m running now: Rod- Orvis Clearwater • length 9’ • wt. 3 5/8 OZ. • 6wt line (number 14 under this on the rod)
Reel- Orvis Clearwater LA II for line weights 4-6, 5.5 oz., 3⅜" diameter
Line- Orvis Clearwater WF-6-F N20 Color- Green
Backstory: got in to fly fishing a few years ago and I bought this rod, reel and line from Orvis as a beginner setup. I really enjoy it, with fly fishing being the only fishing I do now. I fish for pan and bass in ponds some large some small, for the most part.
I’m looking for advice on what to get if I need something new when it comes to the rod and reel and with it being about 5 years since I got this setup I’m assuming I need new line. I’m in Colorado right now and I will be doing some fishing this week trout and what not. -if I could also have someone explain what line, taper and tippet I should get if I keep this setup I have now. setup pictures
