I have to tell you that my absolute favorite two rods for this are the Sage 691 TCX and the Sage 790-4 One. The 6WT TCX is a streamer/popper throwing machine- probably the most efficient rod that I have yet used!! I prefer using the Rio Tropical Clouser Line when smallmouth fishing because the line is super stiff and that overweight head loads that TCX perfectly! The Sage One 7 WT loads a little deeper, and is a more pleasant casting tool and fights the larger fish a bit more efficiently. The Rio Smallmouth Taper WF7 on the 790-4 Sage One seems magical. Stiff enough to cast well and turn over poppers and Murdich Minnows, that is a pretty money line.
