Favorite weight rod
So what is your favorite weight rod? No real answer as it is all about preference. Perhaps it is not the most expensive rod that you own but it is the most fun.

I like them all for different applications, but my favorites are in the 5 weight and I probably use my boo and JWF the most.

Except still waters I fish are 6 weight all the way!

so far I only have 6 wt.. or 5/6 wts.. but I like them all.. but have to say my sage (so far) is the nicest feeling rod in the group.. I just have to make time to get out on the water and try out my mojo rod so see how that one feels being used ...

TFO 7wt when the wind picks up.
And of course TFO profesional 5wt for floating line and
St Crox 5wt for sinking line.

NO, BUT I AM GETTING THERE!!!!!LaughLaughLaugh

I like all mine for different specialties, that is why I have them, BUT, if I was in a hurry and had to grab just one rod.....it would be my 8' 5 weight Boo....It can do anything!

The reason for the poll was based on my thinking what type of fishing do I find the most fun and which wt rod does it involve. I have caught steel-heads on a 6 wt that I didn't find as much fun as catching small wild browns & brookies on a 2 wt. Heck a fish ON any weight is fun but something has got to lead the list so mine would be the 2 wt. BTW my T&T 2 wt. is a better rod than my FF 3 wt.

Re: [Dryrod] Favorite weight rod In reply to
now I see it a little clearer now.. :-).. but since I only have 6 wt rods that is all I can base my answer from...

but.. having used a 6 wt rod to catch multiple sunfish and small bass and trout in TN.. IOW the fish were over matched but most still put up a good fight.. but.. Id love to do the same thing with a light wt rod like a 2 or 3 wt rod.. then it would be a blast.. especially if I happen to hook into a larger fish like MacLarry did this past summer when he caught a decent size lmb that I would say was about 10" long and a pound or just under..

Most of my flyfishing is for bigger fish in the ocean. My 10 and 11 weight are my prefference for the bigger stuff. In the freshwater, I like the 5 to 7 weight for fishing bigger Bass. Cool

Ive mainly just used a 5 weight but i recently picked up and 6 weight ugly stik for carp and bass. Then last month I helped a buddy put a lift on his jeep and put a new motor in it. I basically did most of it because he had tore his bicep loose and is recovering from surgery. In his appreciation he built me a custom 3 weight. 7 foot im6 blank that is a black cherry color. I'm going to couple it with a dam quick 3 weight reel so I'm pretty excited to see how this works out. my reel should be here this week Cool This might be my new favorite
