Re: Fly size vs. Rod wt.
You are correct. You cannot throw let's say a large bass bug
with a 3wt rod. However, I have cast small flies ( 12-14 ) with
my 9wt rod. I've done this while sharing one of my other rods
with a friend.
You'll notice that if you hook a small trout your rod will not
flex too much & the fight will seem very one sided.
Try getting your hands on a lighter weight rod, then the fight
is balanced better.
