    Steve,
    I appreciate the info. Your Rod article for small streams has helped a great deal and I encourage everyone to read it.

    I will call you this coming Monday with my final decision and purchase one of the two Echo or Elkhorn????

    Thanks,
    Terry

    OK folks... this offer will end soon... very soon. Those who have already placed orders are eager for me to place the batch rod order. So... if you're considering a new St Croix rod... act soon. When this offer ends it will be off the table... never to return again. When you hear the deals the other guys are getting you'll be absolutely sick that you didn't take advantage of it.

    You may even collapse

    I feel ya mike. I haven't spent anything on tackle for months now and it just feels bad wrong to me.

    On the rod length issue: I have both a 7' and a 8"6" 3wt and like them both for different reasons. I know I can cast more accurately with the shorter rod. I can cast plenty far with the short rod, by double hauling, but I will say its definitely easier to cast longer distances (say over 35') with the longer rod.

    I greatly prefer a longer rod (8'6" plus) when nymphing for line control, mending, and "trick" casts, but I generally don't use a 3wt for that. I like at least a 4wt for its greater power to set hooks and steer fish in current, as well as the heavier line's better suiting to turning over shot and indicators and all that. That's not to say that I would never fish a nymph with a 3wt, just that I wouldn't leave the car with only the 3wt when I was expecting to fish nymphs and shot most of the day.

    Without having cast it, and with money not being a big issue, I would likely go for the Loomis Metolius 7'9" 3wt. I prefer 3pc rods and I imagine its action would please me greatly.

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.
