Default Re: St. Croix Avid 7'9" 3 wt. - Your thoughts???

I had a chance to fish this rod. Actually used it in a place that's usually a bit too windy and the fish a bit larger than my intended use for this rod. No matter. I was too lazy to rig up my 9' 4 wt. Since this rod was already strung up, I just fished it.

Here's the result...

16" rainbow which was hooked while tight lining a #10 Czech nymph. Again, not the intended role for this rod, but it got the job done.

Just for practice, I threw a #18 Adams with it for awhile just to get some casting time with this rod on the water. It was perfectly suitable for the task.
