    Sure you can, but if it’s too light for that rod it won’t load the rod right.

    btw..This is the classified section/sub-forum.

    Thank you Creek I appreciate.
    I ask this question because the difference in weight between the two line should not be very large !

    No, it’s not a lot. You’ll have to hold a little more line in the air to feel the rod load with the 2wt. So, if you do a lot of close in casting you may not like it.

    Yes I do a lot of close casting for trout, most of the time inside 20 or 30 feets.

    I like to fishing with light materiel , the trill is more exciting !

    You can’t change what the rod feels like for fighting a fish by changing the line. It will still be a 3wt.The lighter line will make the rod feel stiffer up close when casting.

    Personally, I go one line heavier when using a rod for close casts.

    Welcome to the forum Michel, glad to have you here.

    Creek has given sound advice on using the heavier line for shorter range casts. I like that type of fishing the best myself.

    Hey, is it me, or is this forum membership getting bigger?

    It would be a lot bigger if all the members posted.

    It is a limited subject, so it’s to be expected.

    Yeah, but there’s something to say about small communities. I like it this way the best.
