Fishing question, if I may. I have credit card points and I would like to get an Orvis Battenkill reel, but the size available is 1-3 wt. If I would put a 4wt line on that, with no backing, do you think it would be okay? Or... I have a 4wt rod, do you think I could go with a 3wt line on that, if I go with a line that is said to load one size larger? It would be for moderate size stream fishing, dries, nymphs, wets, mostly #8-28.
PS, I poste dthis here as it gets more traffic than the other forums. Hope that is okay for a one off thread.
