Default 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.

Tie One On
