I think you are better off with a 3 wt, which is what the rod specifies. It even casts in mild windy conditions.You're from Frederick. Have you fished Antietam Creek?

I can't say for certain, but I would think it would work fairly well. The action would probably be a little bit too stiff on the shorter casts. Longer casts would probably be easier.

It'll be a little harder to cast probably, but I imagine you could do it. That is pretty light line. It depends what weight your rod is.

It's designed for a 3-weight line at short to moderate distance, so you might get away with a 2-weight, but 1-weight line probably won't load it well.

I bought an Oksuma SLV 2-3 to go with my 5-footer. The price is reasonable and the reel is incredibly light. It won't hold your fly line plus backing, but who needs backing when going after small trout with a 5-foot rod?

Look into the 4.1 oz , 3-5 weight, 2.75" diameter White River CV2 reel. With a 5' rod you will not need much line or backing, since you will be fishing the smaller streams. That means you should look into the smallest reel you can find. The White River CV2 ought to be at or near the top of your list.

Question

How long is the 6'3" 3-weight when broken down?

Instead of buying two rod/reel cases, I'd like to get a double one that could carry both a 4-piece 7'8" 5 weight AND a 6'3" 3 weight 3-piece ultralight .

The 3-piece cases are 38" long, but they are made to accommodate rods/reels up to 9'... so I'm wondering if the 4-piece case at 30" (also made for rods up to 9') might be able to accommodate a shorter-than-8 ft. 3-piece rod.

I'm a petite female, and would like to lighten my load when hiking to great fishing spots... Thanks for your help!

The rod case for my 6'9" rod is 31 1/2" long for the 3 pc rod. I just put the rod in my 9' - 4pc 30" rod case and it fits like a glove.

The warranty is a "No Fault Lifetime". The original owner can send the rod back for replacement or repair for any reason at any time and for an unlimited amount of times. You pay $25 to cover shipping/handling/processing.

Mine weighs 1.6 oz, as near as I can tell on my digital scale. Don't go redfishing with it!
