Living in southerly Oregon, I needed to get a steelhead arrangement so I acquired a 9'6" 7wt. For the lengthiest time these 3 poles covered all my fundamental fly fishing requirements. But when I started working in a fly shop, I had access to even more rods and also began viewing the worth of a more customized pole.

When I first began fly angling, I purchased a 9 foot 5wt, a regular trout pole job steed. I fished it for some time but really did not have as much fun fishing for the smaller fish that populated the creeks near my home. So I acquired a 3 wt. rod. This was the start of the fascination. Much like picking a golf club for the try, you have you select a fishing pole for the fishing conditions. This made my fishing experience so much better!
