I'm definitely looking for SMALL water. The kind of water where your kid is looking for bugs ankle deep and I need something else to do. I have a good 8.5' Livingston that's very quickly made it my go to trout rod (other than my 4 wts for the Met).

I'd take you up on that!

lmk and we'll figure out a time to get it to you.

I got back into glass after we moved south to “DFC” aka Deep Fried Country NC. Purchased a 7’6” 4 wt from Blue Halo on a what the heck. Great trout rod….throws a tight loop on a DT3 or 4 and also WF 4 or 5. Great little rod for the $$ and I believe they’re 25% off now through Sunday. Since then I’ve added a 5, 6, 7, and 8, with McFarland, Steffen, Epic in the mix. Happy with them all.

Sounds like a good Appalachia rod!

Anybody into small glass? Looking at expanding into a 3 or 4 wt for dinks.
Leaning towards a short 3wt since I already have a lovely Winston 8' 4wt graphite rod.

In terms of length should I be looking at ~7'?

I know, I know, I can go post over at Fiberglass Flyrodders, but I'm here.

Thinking tromping around here.

Check out these reasonably priced rods. No need to spend big on a tiny creek rod,,

The Cabela's CGR 6'2" 2wt has my seal of approval. Incredible rod for the price. I have it lined with the Cabela's/Bass Pro triangle taper 2 wt and it is a great setup. It can throw a surprising amount of line and handle large fish. For $70 you will not be disappointed. The also go on sale pretty regularly if you aren't in a hurry.

I keep forgetting about that rod! Definitely not in a hurry, this is a summer time rod hopefully.

I have a 4 wt wulff bamboo triangle taper that works really well. But I don’t know how much line you’ll have out anyway
I’m pretty ignorant when it comes to the multi line tapers, ie 3/4, 5/6 etc. is the that the idea, pick your line based of how much line you plan to cast? Or just if you like it to load deeper?
