I just ordered a st. croix combo with line, backing, and leader. Any suggestions as to where to fly fish and just plain fly fishing tips? Also , My new rod is a six weight, How big a fish (And what type) could I get away with hauling in on that?

Anything small up to a large trout and bass. But it also depends where you go for trout too. Dragon lake for example, has trout up to around nine pounds, and 8 wieghts are recomended for them, but in general, trout and bass i'd go with for the biggest.

a 6wt is the perfect set-up for someone starting out. Although the rod was way too light for the fishing i was doing I did land a 15-18 pound chum on my 6 weight last season but i dont recommend it thats for sure.

wow! I didn't know chum grew that big... If I fished the fraser or thomson with a trout fly how sure could I be not to catch a salmon?
