My brother lives in the heart of Steelhead Alley and I want to get him hooked on fishing. I just bought 2 Rock Creek rods. One is 8'6" and one is 10'6". I am going to give one of these rods to him, but don't know which length would be best and/or most versatile. I'm thinking he will bank fish using spinners/spoons and maybe do a little drifting. Suggestions?
