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

i think the idea of an "extension" for a fly rod is interesting.
I agree with you. I fish the Savage in western Maryland. A 10 foot 3 or 4 wt would be ideal for high sticking. I also fish some smaller pocket water in central Maryland where a shorter rod would be good. I don't know how much difference going from my 9 foot 5 wt to an 8 foot rod would make. Based on some of the tight spots I've gotten into, it sure wouldn't hurt! With the BVK, you can have both.

I did a lot of digging on the internet before posting this question. I found lots of good comments and reviews on this setup - most dating back to 2010 and a few from 2011, but nothing recent. Not sure if there is something better out there or not. Hopefully, someone from this site can give me a more current opinion on the better rods in 2013 and if this rod is still competitive.
