    Ok great! That still works great as a easier casting rod. Just slow it down a bit and let that rod do the work. We are looking forward to your reports and hope she does well with it on the reds there. :cool:

    Check out Moonshine Outcast. I’ve got a couple of their 8wts and they are awesome for the money! $200, cast awesome, forgiving, etc. Its a fast action rod anyone can cast. I have mine paired with Airflo Tropical or Bonefish

    I bought a Tailwater Outfitters Toccoa 8 weight just to get back into fly fishing after 10+ years away. Now that I am regularly catching snook and jacks on it I can see how I might outgrow it, or maybe not and at 75 bucks for the rod, it's hard to beat.

    If you can, find a shop and try some out. Otherwise, buy something reputable with good reviews and have her practice. A hood caster can get more out of a cheap rod than a novice can out of a top tier rod.

    In any case, your daughter wants to go catch redfish with you. You've already won.
