    I've used 3 and 4 wt switches and speys for trout and love them! 3wts primarily for soft hackles and smaller, unweighted streamers and 4wts for bigger streamers and/or heavier sink tips. True 5wt speys are more for really big trout or small summer run steelhead.

    I have a 3 & 5 and if there was a "Shootout" for "All Fly Rods" the micro spey would surely win the "Fun to Fish" category. It will also expand your fly fishing options like no other rod and to add to fireroads excellent summary lets add SMB as an option with the 4 & 5.

    Also have a 2 weight, paired with OPST commando 200 grain for streamers and also a DT line for small soft hackles.
