ya man I just wanted to try it out seeing as I never tried a fly that small before. wanted to see if somethign would actually bite it.. I remember someone telling me not to use a size 8 or 10 fly that it was too big on a 3wt and it wouldn't cast for ****. but I used a size 10 brown beadhead bugger today and I was casting it all the way across the river! I am a streamer person myself. I love me some clousers and buggers. thanks man.
