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

I'm with newby on this one.....I have the 3 weight BVK, a 2 weight finesse, and two redington CT's in 3 and 5 weights. The BVK rarely gets any use on small streams, which I fish the most. IMHO mind you, it is just not a delicate rod. I overline it to a 4 weight to fit my casting style, and save it for some smallmouth bass on the new river, here in N.C., where the afternoon winds, and wide open water makes this rod ideal. This rod is a real "shooter", but I find that quality to be unnecessary in tight quarters. Everyone is different, and I hope you can test cast a few different rods before you make a purchase. Good luck in your search...
