Greys GRXi+ Fly Rods are superior in every way to its predecessors. Built on a totally new, redesigned high modular carbon blanks, the new range gives you more power in the butt section, yet still has the fast recovery speed loved by all anglers.
The most common use for a 3 weight fly rod is fishing for trout in small streams. These small streams are usually tight quarters- there are bushes, trees, logs, and boulders all crowding the water.
Even more, what is the best length for a fly rod? Fly rods are generally longer than conventional rods, but can vary greatly in length. Shorter rods, 6-8 ft., are excellent for small creeks with many obstacles to cast around. Longer rods, 8-10 ft., work well in larger bodies of water where lengthier casts are necessary to reach fish.
And, how big of a fish can a 3 wt fly rod handle?
Or does it even matter if the fish I catch range from 7-16 inches ? Hi Ed, if your fishing is mostly to be in Wisconsin in the Driftless on smaller streams and the majority of your fish will be 7 to 16 inches, a 3 wt bamboo will handle the task pretty much as well as the graphite rods you own.
Are Shorter fly rods more accurate?
Accuracy: I learned this one early on while conventional bass fishing: it's easier to be more accurate with a shorter rod. Now, of course the skill of the caster plays a big role here, but my short to mid range accuracy definitely improves. A shorter rod is simply easier to control and be more pinpoint with.

So, you want to spend $150 to $200 minimum to get a decent fly rod. $200 fly rods these days are just superb. They are great casting tools, they look nice, and some people never want to go any further than a $200 rod and you don't have to. Now you can spend a lot more than $200 on a fly rod.
Verdict: There is a difference in quality compared to cost in this category. Spend the most money that you can afford in this category. There is absolutely an improvement in rod quality compared to dollar spent.
Because they take a long time to make and so much hand labor goes into them they are expensive. But you have a chance to win one this month, just for trying on a pair of waders. Don't miss this opportunity—you won't see many chances to get a free bamboo rod.
A 7 weight rod is perfect for chucking big streamers, whether you're in a drift boat or wading. The backbone of the rod has the strength to propel the heavy and un-aerodynamic chunks of steel and feathers, but also has the flexibility to fight fish without breaking them off.
In short, 5-weight fly rods are widely considered to be the best all-around choice for anglers; and for good reason. From making delicate casts on small mountain streams, to fighting 20-inch trout on larger rivers and lakes, 5-weight fly rods are versatile enough to handle a wide range of fly fishing scenarios.
