Default Re: Type of Fly & Rod for Trout

If I had to pick one fly for trout it would probably be a peacock soft hackle. They can be fished deep with weight added or in the film as an emerger. I probably catch more fish on a Copper John, but its more specialized, as it seeks the bottom quickly.

A 3wt is a perfectly good trout rod, with some exceptions. As long as you're not after large fish (16"+) or fishing in heavy turbulent water, it should work just fine. A 3wt is very well suited to laying casts down gently on smooth water and not scaring fish.

I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.
