I’m trying to put together a setup with some equipment I recently bought.
I picked up 2 fly rods at an estate sale:
- Garcia Conolon 8-1/2 dry fly action (7-1/2’?)
- South Bend Outdoorsman (7’)
The Garcia needs a small repair (missing a guide), but it seems to be the nicer of the 2 rods.
I also bought an inexpensive reel to use with the rods, but I have no idea what type of line to use, etc.
I have only fly fished a few times, and not in at least 10 years. I will be mostly on the Western NY Finger lakes, Lake Ontario, and sometimes in the Adirondacks. I’ll be fishing from a 14’ touring kayak.
Any help would be appreciated.
