I know I will probably get ragged for this, but when I am fishing from my kayaks, I seem to have a lot less trouble casting my 6-1/2 foot 5 wt., rather than my longer 8-1/2 and 9-foot rods. I can't reach the end of the longer ones to untangle line, check my leader, etc.... without almost sticking my reel in the water. The 6-1/2' rod also seems easier to cast sitting down. Is there anything wrong with using a 6-1/2 footer in the yak?
