One of the things I'll do when I get bored is take my 3 weight out to the pond in my neighborhood. I usually expect to catch mostly sunfish. Friday afternoon I decided to make my way around the pond and throw an olive woolly bugger to see what I could catch. I did catch plenty of sunfish, but I did get a couple bigger bites than I was expecting. On a sidenote, is there a fish out there that won't eat an olive woolly bugger? Also, I recently purchased the redington classic trout, in the 7"6 3 weight model (recommended to me by Cord). Let me say that I really like this little rod. It seems to cast really accurately and I never felt overmatched against either of these fish.
Very nice when you can't go trout fishing. I'm over 220 miles away from BB but do a lot of pond fishing here in Texas. Try the olive the bead head scud and see what you come up with. I was fishing a 1 acre pond with my 8' TFO 2wt a few years ago targeting bluegills. This beast took my size 16 olive bead head scud in the upper lip. Even the pond beasts like a snack once in awhile.
