I found this article on the Clan Rods website and really enjoyed the thoughts that it shared. It gives a very traditional take on the incredibly popular use of "short" spey/switch rods as well as short lines that have taken over the 2-handed market. It's interesting to read the perspective of a master rod builder who speaks only of rods above 15' all the way to 22' in length.
Being as that I'm really on a "traditional" trip and really enjoying casting longer rods (13-15') with lines of 55-100' in length, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this.
