Welcome to the forum you'll find lots of good stuff here, least of which is what follows:

I'm in Virginia. I regularly fish farm ponds for LM bass and the shenandoah for smallies. For both I use 9' 5wt and 7wt. The former is a medium action which does great most of the time, but I reach for the latter (a tip flex/fast action) when the wind pickups or I want to throw big, hairy, feathery bass flies.

I sometimes take along a 8'6 full flex/slow action 3wt. It doesn't throw big flies but it can throw average size poppers. And being a full flex rod and a 3wt it makes those pan fish feel bigger and more fun! I've landed pan fish on the 5 and 7wts and it was no fun at all. You can literally whip em right out of the water if you're not careful.

That's my 2 cents! By all means ENJOY!
