Re: 3 wt for blue gill
I use my 2wt for bluegill and small bass. I throw streamers up to #6 with it and terrestrials about the same. I can also throw some smaller frog patterns with it. As I'm fond of saying: its not about how far you think you want to cast, its about how far you NEED to cast. You wont get great distance with a size 6 on a 2wt, but you'd get more than you think, and if the fish are 5-40ft away, who cares if you can't go farther.
