Re: Rod flex?
I agree with the other Vern. I fished a 3wt slow flex for a couple of years in the GSMNP and thought I was about right.One day I broke my 3wt. slow rod and was forced to try something else for a few trips.I tried a 5wt. tip-flex and a 4wt. mid-flex and have been using the 4wt ever since. Like most things there is not one perfect rod for all conditions.The 3wt slow flex was too slow some days and the 5wt tip flex was too fast some days.I found I could cover most conditions better with the mid-flex 4wt.
