Have you decided that you'd like to centre-pin fish for small stockers or native trout, but want the flexibility to toss a dry fly when the urge strikes?  Tossing small floats, trotting the perfect drift, and making the switch over to light line wt. fly fishing is no problem with this setup.  Building the rod correctly given this criteria is only a matter of adjusting the tackle in balance with the strengths of the target species.  Infinity Rod Creations has always shared a deep affection for small trout-mountain stream fly fishing and of course drift fishing via a centre-pin rig.  Given the component model of this build, utilizing it effectively as a fly and float rod is a snap!
