It has shocked me how few people know how versatile these rods can be.I got my sage 3wt esn in 2012. I broke out of the rut with a WF 4wt line for a dry fly. I never looked back. A decade of fishing a dry on that stick has been the best move of my career.
That would be ideal, just need to find a new reel that pairs nicely with my 11' 3wt euro rod. Right now I have a Hatch Finatic 4 plus on it, and it is balanced perfectly.... and, unfortunately extra spools for it are hard to find, and a fortune. I might just find another reel that pairs ok with it, and carry the extra reel with WF floating line.Just carry an extra spool and swap out the sucky euro line, for a floater.
Right now, I keep my WF floating line on my Hatch reel, and euro nymph with the Rio shorty 20' euro line. I'd like to have one separate spool though with a WF floating line, and another spool with something like OPST Lazar line or some thin running line, and use that for euro nymping AND the ability to attach something like a 150-175 grain micro skagit head like the small OPST commandos, for the option of spey casting. I have heard our ESN rods can chuck these small skagit heads and send smaller streamers flying very far. Never tried it though, but if it works, it sort of brings what you and I are talking about to another level!
