WARNING! There are a ton of newbie questions! What size reel would you suggest for a 6wt (smallmouth fishing the local rivers)? My tentative plan is to pick ONE fly in ONE color (Clouser Minnow or Wolly Bugger), and fish it until I know what I'm doing. However, my plan may change as I'm seeking the advice of some local experts once I get some time off work. I'm sure that I'm over thinking this (working too much and not fishing), but some of the factors that I'm considering/ have question about: Will moving up to a 7wt line make it easier to cast (learn)? A lot of lines are actually a half size+ heavier than rated, sill move up to a 7wt (7.5wt)? Large Arbor....does it really matter? Seems to me adding more backing has the same effect? Is backing capacity even a factor for smallmouth fishing? Drag? Should reel weight be a consideration (lighter is less tiring for blind casting)? Would you suggest an extra spool (will I ever need more than one type of line)? WF or DT? DT takes more capacity, should that be a factor? So, should I be looking at 5/6, 6/7, 4/5/6, 5/6/7, 6/7/8 reel? Does it really matter? I miss my baitcaster! If you made it this far................Thanks!
