3 wt Rod Recommendation (BVK maybe)?
I've fished a Redington 9 foot 5 wt for a few years now. I'm finding more and more smaller creeks and streams in my area - free stone with lots of pocket water and smaller limestone creeks where a lighter and more delicate presentation would be better. Something a little shorter than 9 feet would make some of the tight places I get into a little easier to fish as well. I'm not looking to drain the retirement fund on a new rod, but do want something good. I'm considering the BVK 3 wt AND the 2 foot extension that TFO sells. This would give me a slightly shorter rod (8 feet) and the ability to turn it into a 10foot nymphing rod when needed. Costs are $225 and $99 which is a price point I am comfortable with.
Does anyone have any thoughts or recommendations?
