September 19, 2016 at 11:15 am #5479 MICHELQUEBECParticipant Thank you Creek I appreciate. I ask this question because the difference in weight between the two line should not be very large ! September 19, 2016 at 11:26 am #5480 CreekParticipant 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. September 19, 2016 at 11:38 am #5481 MICHELQUEBECParticipant 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 ! September 19, 2016 at 12:01 pm #5482 CreekParticipant 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. September 19, 2016 at 6:41 pm #5486 Scotty MacFlyParticipant 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. September 19, 2016 at 7:43 pm #5487 MICHELQUEBECParticipant Thank you Scotty Macfly, I will follow your dicussion from Quebec Canada.

September 19, 2016 at 8:12 pm #5489 Scotty MacFlyParticipant Hey, is it me, or is this forum membership getting bigger? September 19, 2016 at 9:31 pm #5491 CreekParticipant It would be a lot bigger if all the members posted. It is a limited subject, so it’s to be expected. September 19, 2016 at 10:50 pm #5492 Scotty MacFlyParticipant Yeah, but there’s something to say about small communities. I like it this way the best.
