Questions & Answers for St. Croix St. Croix Bank Robber Fly Rods


I fish for large and smallmouth bass with large heavy streamers. I use both floating and sink-tip lines. Is this rod right for me?

answer 1
This rod was more designed for trout and the streamers associated with that style of fishing.

If you are looking for a great streamer rod i would go with the Sage Bass series. They are great rods and have different weights for bluegill al lteh way up to peacock bass.

I have fished the largemouth rod and it is great. I wil lbe picking up the bluegill or smallmouth rod here shortly.

No, ST Croix poles are poor performers with really bad warranty support. I would look at other manufacturers

answer 3
You normally use anywhere from a 5 to an 8 weight fly line. Use an 8 weight fly rod when they are using large streamers.
