Thread: Light WT Rod?

    Default Re: Light WT Rod?

    I'd go with a St. Croix Imperial 863.4, it's a 8'6" 3wt, they also have a 7' and 6'6" 3wt. I dont have that particular rod but I do have the 864.4 and its a fun little rod to catch bluegill and small bass on. If you want lighter than a 3 they have a 6' 2wt in the Imerial line also. The Imerials are great rods for the price, and have a lifetime warranty.

    I too have an Imperial 4wt. It is a nice rod, so I am pretty sure a 2wt Imperial would be great. I would recommend them too. Love that lifetime warranty.

    Ozark,

    If you want a good fight, I suggest foregoing the creek and seeking larger prey...6"+ bluegills and the like.

    Cheers,

    Just get yourself an Eagle Claw Featherlight and have a blast!
    Neat and sturdy little rods that cost so little you can buy the complete Featherlight fly rod series and still have enough left over to buy me a dinner and a 6 pack!
