Default Re: Fly rods to kill for--made for the Smokies


I have a 9' 3 weight that I built this winter with a kit from H & H. I haven't used it much in the smokies yet, but I had a good day fishing on the Mad River back in my home state of Ohio. The extra length made for some good drifts with a small nymph, while allowing 8-12 brownies and bows to give a good account of themselves. I can see where the extra length will come in handy in the smoky streams since it can be difficult to get a drag free float on those types of streams with a shorter rod.

Have fun!
