When I first started fly angling, I got a 9 foot 5wt, a normal trout rod work steed. I fished it for a while yet didn't have as significantly fun angling for the smaller fish that inhabited the creeks near my house. So I acquired a 3 wt. rod. This was the start of the fascination. Just like picking a golf club for the shot, you have you pick a fishing pole for the fishing conditions. This made my fishing experience so much better!

Living in southern Oregon, I needed to obtain a steelhead configuration so I bought a 9'6" 7wt. For the longest time these 3 poles covered all my basic fly angling needs. Yet when I started functioning in a fly dispensary, I had access to even more rods as well as began seeing the value of a more specialized rod.
