Actually, you can use a gear rod you just cant use any gear on it. No external weights ( split shot, pencil lead etc) no floats, no swivels, no anything, just a fly on the end of your line. If you can cast that with your bait caster then you should be ok.

It should also be noted for the fly casters that there is also no floats I mean indicators or split shot allowed either.

That would be interesting to watch someone trying to cast a fly only on a gear rod lol

While technically correct to satisfy the regs, I was wondering that also. It would be practically impossible to cast a fly that weighs almost nothing on mono with a gear rod. ;D Care to share how you would do it?

Pretty sure Krypto was being sarcastic. The original poster asked if he can still use his baitcaster, and Krypto was just pointing out that the regs don't specify what type rod you must use, only what terminal tackle is allowed. A flyrod certainly seems like the only thing to use, but if you could figure a way to use a bait rod and satisfy the regs (maybe load the reel with a WF8F line??) you can use it or any other rod. :peace: :peace:

I just re-read Krypto's post, and he did state "if you could cast that with your baitcaster then you should be ok"...which pretty much answers my question. :)
