how come they make 9' 3WTs?
a question: if a 3 wt rod would mostly be used on small streams, what purpose is served by a 9 foot long 3 wt? not being confrontational, just genuinely looking for a good reason to use such a rod.
well, to be honest, won one in an auction, used it one day on a stream new to me, and haven't used it since. am i missing something?
further disclaimer: my favorite small stream rod is a 7'6" 3wt that i plan to "take with me", just in case...
fly fishing and baseball share a totally deceptive simplicity; that's why they can both be lifelong pursuits.
