Re: 3 wt for blue gill
There is actually more power the those weight rods then youd think. I've flung a 00 and it was surprisingly easy to cast. granted it doesnt push super far, but you arent making super far casts with that kind of rod.
I have 3wts in a St Croix Avid and Sage Vantage and a 2wt CT. They are all excellent rods and I will recommend them all. I was using the vantage this spring for the big bluegill in a pond by work and its so much freaking fun. Plus a 10" bull bluegill will really make that 3wt curl over.
