I bought a StCroix 7' 3wt 4 piece Imperial from LRO and it is a great rod that is very inexpensive.The creeks I fish don't have trails alongside them and I like the shorter rods since they are easier to thread through the brush to get around obstacles like waterfalls and pools too deep to wade up through.

I had thought about a 2wt but since I like fishing dry flies and there always seems to be a little wind on the steep creeks I like that the 3wt would be more efficient.

The St Croix has really made my Winston IM6 7.5' 3wt jealous since fish it less now,and not just because the St Croix is a 4 piece rod and the Winston is a 2 piece.I really love the elegant nickle silver sliding band and birdseye maple reel seat on the Winston and the beautiful deep green finish of the rod,but the St Croix fishes just as well and the top notch warranty is reassuring when you fish well off the beaten path.It would put a dent in my soul if I broke that RL Winston.
