|Built this 10ft 3wt rod after a presentation at our Trout Unlimited meeting by NC Fly Fishing Team / US Fly Fishing Team members on the techniques and equipment they use. When they had the opportunity to look/feel my completed rod at a later date, they told me it was the first rod built from a kit that they deemed acceptable for their techniques/use. I can think of no better endorsement than that of the pros.
Ive landed a number of 18 to 20 inch trout on this rod. Its light, sensitive, and a great rod to nymph with but also will flip a dry. Love it!|

||THAT was a thrill on a 3wt!!!!!
Had to wait to clear some space to build the !0 3wt. Xi. seemed to be a smooth project this time.
Waited a month to fish it so that the stocking would be under way here in south western NH. Figuring this would be the perfect rod for stockies.
My first time on the water was Saturday with your rod in hand.
Several chubs and several adjustments later while using a black Wooley Bugger, I had a huge for these parts rainbow hammer the fly!
I was all alone in deep, fast water, so fortunately with the 3x tippet I had on I was able to drag him upstream a bit into my measure net.
Beautiful 17er , and let me tell you THAT was a thrill on a 3wt!!!!!|
