I agree! Good choice. The 12' Iwana with a 10.5' Traditional Line was my first. With a nicely executed slingshot cast, it will put a fly into a 1 foot gap under an overhanging rhododendron!

The Iwana is a great rod. I think it has a great variety of use. The main reason why I pick up a different rod, is only when fishing bigger, more open water. I still use it even for them.

Go get em! You will have a blast.
