Well, it’s fall again, the time to pull out the big flies, dust off the heavyweight fly rod, and chase monster brown trout. This year, I was prepared early. After picking up an 8-weight LST/LSR Combo from Cabela’s, I took full advantage of the power of this lightweight feel with heavyweight clout set-up. I know what you’re thinking, 8-weight for Montana? Well, after taking on a few colossal Canyon Ferry carp, and knowing the strength of those big, burly browns in the Yellowstone, an 8-weight seemed the only way to go. The LSR reel is machined aluminum and ported to lose any extra weight. The drag is fully sealed to keep out sand and dirt. The LST rod is medium- to high-modulus graphite, making it ideal for punching big flies in the wind or laying down a size 18 caddis. I fished this combo in both size 6 and 8 weights and was pleased with the performance of both. Whether you’re buying your first rod, or just need expand your range, this Cabela’s combo is hard to beat for the price and quality.
