Default Re: 3 wt Rod Recommendation (BVK maybe)?

I have the BVK 3wt and the extension. I love the rod in both configurations. The 8ft IMHO is plenty delicate enough for presenting dries. I use a WF-3-F Rio Gold and have no trouble casting 40 feet with it. If I need to do better than 40 ft then I grab a different rod. It also rolls very well. When I add the extension it does a bit better with a Wf-4 line, but then when I use the extension, I am usually nymphing, and delicacy is not that much of an issue.
