Re: 3 weighting it for gill/bass!
You can throw size 8-10 streamers on that three weight! That is all I fish on my 3. I refuse to fish tiny dries on it. I will use a 1 or 2 weight for that, but the three caught me a small carp this past weekend on a #10 bugger variant. Don't resign yourself to only throwing those tiny little flies on that rod. Enjoy!
