Default Re: 3wt set up for 1st timer

Buying fly fishing equipment is like most everything else,
you get what you pay for. If you are thinking that you
maybe doing this great sport for sometime then I would
recommend going with the Sage. Lifetime warranties are
great. You break it, they replace it. You may initally pay
a little more, but it's worth the extra few bucks in the
long run.

How big are the streams you will be fishing ? The shortest
rod I own is a 8'-6" 3 wt. If the stream is more open you
may want to think about a 4wt 9' by Sage. I tried one a
while back & will be saving some $$ to hopefully get one
sometime in the future. I have always had trouble using
that short (7'-6") of a rod. Others may not have that
trouble, but a longer rod, in my experience, helps with
the more delicate fly presentation.

Please believe me there is nothing wrong with the other rods
you have thought about, like other sporting equipment it
comes down to choice. Good luck ! Enjoy this great sport, I do.
