I use a 8ft 2wt TFO pro for dries in the park and love it. It is a great brookie rod because you can still high stick pocket water. I have been playing with a 6'3" 3wt medium action for nymphs this week. It is my bluegill rod and I pitch only very small poppers and 12-16 bead head buggers for them. It has been fun on hook ups but can be a bit of work with line control in fast water. During summer it might work better with lower flows but I would stick with a 8+ft 4 or 5 wt for nymphs depending upon your other type of fishing. I went back to one yesterday and caught more fish.
