The BBR 805 is designed mainly to fish for steelhead and salmon on larger rivers with moderate to heavy current. The length makes it a great choice for deep-water runs and pools where some extra weight is required and line control is more of an issue. Can’t find an eight-foot flipping stick for those oversized largemouth? Need something to handle heavy cover? This moderate action rod is perfect for those utilizing braided line, and it fishes shiners with the best of them.
