Default Re: 3wt Help.

Orvis has a nice chart that answers part of your query. Choosing The Right Tippet Size

On my three weight I use flies from size 1 (rarely) down to size 24 (rarely), and most of my three weight fishing is using flies that range from 10-18. I do use small poppers and weighted flies such as bead heads and these present small problems with the extra weight, or wind resistance but nothing that can't be overcome easily.
