BIIt’s with streamers & double nymph rigs

BIIt's with streamers & double nymph rigs

Has anyone used 4 or 5 wt BIIt’s with streamers or a single or double nymph with indicator? I was wondering what your thoughts were compared to the WT’s & BIIx’s?

Used the BIIt 904-4 with all three and it does a fine job.

Was fishing my 8’6″ 5 weight today with nymphs, split shot, and a strike indicator. And the rod handled it very well, I’m almost wishing I purchased the 4 weight instead because of how much backbone this rod has. I’m sorry to say I haven’t fished a B2X, nor will I fish my WT with anything else but dry flies (It’s a 7’6″ 3 weight).

I dislike my 4 wt WT 8′ 6″ with double nymph plus indicator, love the BIIx 5 for that (borrowed it to fish once) like the 6 BIIx better, like the WT 5 8’6″ best for that. Not tried my new 8′ BIIt 4 for that yet. One light nymph wasn’t a problem with WF line. I have DT arriving Thursday for it though.

I am not expecting the BIIt 8 footer to be great with all that junk on, given the short length, but I gotta try it. Saturday I had some long line pick up difficulties that are eliminated with the WT 5 8’6 and better.

Looks like even the short 8′ it works for wayne, but he’s been at this longer the I. I’ll try the rig with both lines this weekend and let you know.
