Muscling big flies and big fish around tight cover requires rapid reflexes and a fly rod that can respond instantly. Hauling a snook out of mangroves or a bass out of a treetop are basically the same job, and they are best accomplished with a shorter rod that delivers more torque. The 7'10" White River Fly Shop® Heat Fly Rod brings some wicked heat to your game when you’re driving home the iron; they also respond to a shorter, more aggressive power stroke on the cast. All in all, you get a power rod that can wrench a thrashing northern pike into net range or turn a running bull redfish back to the boat with an ease that will astound you. Legal length for bass tournaments.

The narrow spool, true large arbor design of the White River Fly Shop® 270º® Fly Reel provides rapid line pickup and reduced drag loading. And because the spool is taller, it also reduces tight line coils, ensuring better line handling. The frame and spool are cold-forged and CNC-machined aluminum for unyielding hardness and rigidity. A super-smooth in-line disc drag system assures even pressure to protect light tippets. Black hard-anodized finish offers protection from the elements.

Outfits also include World Wide Sportsman® Extreme® fly line, backing, and leader.

A: 
If you're used to a nine footer, it will take some getting used to. Snappier, shorter power stroke. Minimal wrist; you can't away with dropping your tip too much in front or back cast. Snappy double haul to build line speed. That said, once you get the hang of it, you'll be able to lauch like a rocket. A good rod for in tight mangroves. In open water you'll probably go with your long rod.

A: 
Per our article Selecting a Fly Rod (part II):

If you've been accustomed to a 9-foot rod, there will be a learning curve involved in mastering a shorter stick. Timing is a bit more critical, but once you get used to them, these little rods can do tricks for you. Most close range sticks have a softer action to assist loading.

You can find more information on how to select your new fly rod by going to http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CFPage?storeId=10151&catalogId=10001&langId=-1&mode=article&objectID=32632&objectType=article&cmid=OLBASIC_32632_TITLE and http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/CFPage?storeId=10151&catalogId=10001&langId=-1&mode=article&objectType=guide&objectID=32634

An ideal fly rod for King salmon is a 10 wt. fast taper rod with some muscle in the butt section. Anything from a 9wt to a 11 wt will do though.

That's a more wide open situation. Most hardcore anglers on that river prefer a longer rod for better line control if nothing else.
