A 'Baby Boo' is a good thing, even the "Zhu" china rods aren't bad at all.

But ..... I probably shouldn't say this ....... But the Cabela's all in kits are cheap as chips and in the light weight rods are darned good value for the money.





Waiting for Ard's PM letting me know about my 30 day suspended sentence.

+1 on cabelas rods. I have a 3wt 7.5 tqr series and it's my go to very small Creek rod. Definitely user friendly but I'd like it to be a little slower. I'd like to cast one of their glass rod series but the trip is a long one.

Also

+1 on ct rods. Just got a 4wt 8 and it has such a sweet action. Definitely check it out, you can get fantastic deals right now on the discontinued ct. Sierra trading Post namely. Maybe use the extra cash for a sweet new hardy dd. And super nice line. I picked the ct over every other rod I cast save the Scott s4 and g2 and including orvis' medium action trout specific rod.

One of my favorite all-around 3 wt. rods for native Brookies is my 7'6" Sage ZXL. Good in almost all conditions and easy to cast in tight or long. Great feel with a fish on and light in the hand.

If I know my spot, and it's not going to be surrounded by too much brush, then I pull out my 6'0" Payne 95 taper cane rod. Paired with a reel like the Hardy Featherweight and a DT line, it's just a magical streamside combination.
