Default Re: Trout Fly Gear Suggestions?

7wt? For dry flies? for 12" trout? Geez, I use my 4wt to throw medium size flies, even deer hair divers and poppers to 3-4lb bass with no issue. If you were fishing larger rivers with big trout I would say to go with a 6wt but for small ponds and rivers I prefer my 4wt, a 5wt would be fun too.

I use an 8wt for pike, stripers and albies so I think a 7wt would be way overkill in this situation. WAY overkill.
