  1. We like a 9 foot 6 inch 5 weight around here. Windy stillwaters and a do-everything rod for the Black Canyon are the niches we scratch most often with this model, which casts overhead much better in my opinion than a 10 footer, but offers added length to keep the back cast up and really bomb out a searching cast. The Session 955 is a good one and great with a Rio Gold. It’s powerful enough but not overpowered, meaning it will fish a dry with touch and have enough power to push out an indicator rig to the other side of the seam. I appreciate a fighting butt on a 9 foot 6 inch rod for a better balance and just like the looks of a small fighting butt. The 9 foot 6 inch 5 weight is a specialty trout rod, designed for the angler looking for a little extra edge, and I think this is an easy call to add to the quiver. It holds up a long line confidently in the backcast and I believe this rod rests perfectly between the 905 and 906 Session on the power scale, a 5 weight with a bit more range without sacrificing touch.

  2. This is arguably my favorite Session rod in the whole lineup. It can cover a wide range of fishing situations and is a lovely caster. It is a sensational option for the fisherman who wants a longer rod but doesn’t want the added weight of a 10’ rod. The 955/4 casts well at all distances and forms a beautiful loop almost immediately. It’s a rod that will handle a wide range of casting strokes well, but consistent with all longer rods, consider slowing your stroke down just a tad to really maximize this rod’s capabilities. I wouldn’t be afraid to fish this rod anywhere. It has the feel and touch to fish big dry flies but also the low end power to fish heavier indicator rigs on bigger water. When choosing a fly line, consider the Rio Gold or SA Infinity taper. It handles both lines well and will be happy fishing at all distances.

  3. A superb fishing tool with impressive refinement at this price, the Session 955-4 has an ideal flex profile for this length and line weight with lively play and response from the middle of the rod. Ideal for nymphing large rivers or coasting a dry fly along the far bank, this empowering fly rod reduces fatigue with low swing weight, a comfortable, easy going rod to fish all day, especially when long casts and stack mends are in order. I loved it with a Rio Gold and even more with an SA Infinity Taper, the latter of which excels in big water angling situations.
