for some reason for the past two years, I've been dying to get a really light setup, such as a 2wt, maybe even on down to a sage 00 weight. I use a 7'6" 4wt now, but find myself fishing in smaller and smaller water all the time. does anyone have any experience using a super light setup, and or any suggestions?? I've narrowed down to either: winston 2wt, sage 0wt, or orvis 1 or 2 wt superfine. any suggestion? wouldn't it be nice to have a different rod for each stream?

I was also bitten by that same bug many years ago.....for the last 10 or so years I have been fishing the original Orvis One Ounce, 2wt rod....this is the 6'6" version....only problem I am having with it now is trying to get it away from my son.....great little rod and as Orvis promotes it this is not a toy but a well balanced rod that can put out a lot of line. While I generally bring this one out on some of the higher streams in the Park I have managed to land a 16" bow out of the Little Pigeon and a 14" brown up above Elkmont. You can cast all day with this rod and not feel like you have been beat to death....saw a great deal on one the other day on ebay....might be a good way to get into this type of fishing....good luck.

five or six years ago I bought a Loomis Triology 2 weight rod. I use that rod 80% of the time in the park. It's a little whipy, but that's the nature of the beast. This rod is about eight feet long, and think it's about a half foot too long. Great for tricos and #16 & 18 BWOs. Found it to be a little picky about leaders. A seven foot three weight is much more forgiving.
