Check with Ratgunner and see what he has. And if you still need some recommendations:

I use my Orvis Clearwater II 7.6 3wt all the time on small creeks.

Agree 100% with Pcray. A heavier line, IMO,,will generally throw a tighter loop with less effort. Both are necessary on brookie streams as tighter loops keep you from hanging up as much and the reduced effort really pays off after a long day on the water.

I was slictly a 3wt guy for small water stuff. I was testing rods looking to a 6' or 6'6" brookie rod. With a 6' 3wt Orvis Trout Bum, my loops were so large that my newbie friend was able to see it. I ended. Up getting a 6'6" 4wt TB with a 5wt line and could not believe the difference.

Hey All, Thanks for your input. I'd not thought about the whole heavier line/tighter loops, but it makes sense. I was thinking "short and light" in order to get through the brush and trees, and not spook fish. Lots to think about. In perusing the forum I see a lot of you are using the Echo Carbon. I'm not familiar with Echo rods, but I'll look into them.
