    I prefer 10ft6" over 10ft where I fish.
    Got a nice skagit line that works well with it,either as a shooting head on my local ressie or if I want to do single hand spey casts with it.
    Streamer fishing... this is my go to rod for streamer fishing,just flip them out with it,no flyline needed,the length is ideal for working a streamer.
    Also plan on using this rod for fishing a team of spiders or indicator nymphing,reviews say its good.
    These light 10ft plus rods are also great for catapult casting nymphs
    Down side is the price!

    That rod sounds like the holy grail, I gave one a wiggle when I was in orvis Bakewell but haven’t cast one. I’m okay with pricey things as long as they improve my fishing or I get more enjoyment from using them. My obsession with custom glass rods has cost me more than I care to admit!

    Is that the 5’7” 0wt that Rawson build? I have a 7’5” 4wt red ijuin hard para being delivered from Yamame fly rods in January. I should stop but I fancy another Barclay for blue lining next season. Maybe that will be the last..

    Yes that's the one Sean!
    He built me a 6ft6" 1wt this year and I love it!
    Wanted the shorter one as well
    Terenzio silk lines for both

    You’ll have to let me know what you think, I fancy trying a zero weight rod.

    Will do!
    Its basically a light 1wt
    The way the AFTM scale drops down,a 000wt would really be a true owt.
    I have fished small streams for many years Sean and I can tell you the 6ft6" 1wt Rawson made me,is just the nicest thing I've ever used

    I need to try one! I’ve been planning on ordering a Barclay 66 or 68 as they’re four piece. Is the Rawson a three piece? Not that it matters when fishing in the U.K. but I have a stateside trip planned to go blue lining for native brookies!
