What action are you looking for? High end rod? I have an inexpensive 7' 4wt listed for sale. The action is medium with a WF4. I have never tried a 3 wt line on it so I am unsure what the action would be like.

Albright has some very good deals.....also, I tested a 7-6 3 wt Temple Fork rod at the Marlborough show in January and it felt great....if I recall, I had it overlined with 4 wt line...


If you're looking for something a little more high-end, go to JP Ross Fly Rods Web site and build your own to spec....I got my wife a beautiful 7-6 4wt for Christmas.....

Check out their Beaver Meadow line...

i got the A-5 model albright , 7'6 wt and overlined with 5 wt double taper , great for small streams but will handle the wind and streamers a little better than a 3wt but a 3wt for strictly brookies will be my next rod and it will be an albright !

Salmo,
I have an Okuma Guide Select 7'-6" 3 pc 3wt in great shape except fo a soiled cork.

I've had my eye on the 7'6" 5 piece 3 weight from albright for a while. Hopefully I'll be able to buy it in the next month or so for this season. I've seen many good reports of their equipment.

not sure if albright is still doing it or not but when my wife bought me the rod they had a deal that if you spent 100 $ you got a free reel (the top water reel ) i got the 3/4 reel which balanced the model a-5 4wt perfectly , the reel weighs 3.5 oz and the rod weighs 2.7 i think , the reel is all metal , click adjustable drag , click and pawl reel , i think it is perfect for storing line on a small rod , i think it sells for like 20.00 , haven't been on their site in a while

FWIW, the Cabela's 3 Forks 3wt has a major online fanbase on rec.flishing.fly (or whatever its called). I understand it has been modernized somewhat, but for $50 brand new, it can't be that bad.

Meangreen,

I'm interested in that rod (Echo FW 7'8" 3wt). Do you own one or have cast it? Where did you find it?
