I've taken to fishing a lot of medium to small streams for bass and panfish. This is popper and streamer water and gets tight at times. I've been looking for a 7' 6wt taper to make and have derived a few options, but was wondering if anyone has come up a rod taper that might fit these conditions?

Thanks, I've seen that taper in the past and wondered how well it would work, since I've never had anyone recommend it. I think I'll give it a try, especially since I won't have to wait for the plastic shims to arrive before I start in on finish planning.

I have a 7 foot 3-piece 6-wt taper for a Quad, if that interests you....
I had somewhat the same problem, a couple of years ago, and solved it rather nicely, I think. I needed something for the white bass run on the Eno, but would also be adequate for bass in the Neuse. The rod I came up with has a stiffer tip, so it can control heavy lures, both in the air and in the water, but, on the other hand, it is a little lighter in the mid-section to make it a more moderate action that roll casts well.
