> I was in the fish hawk just the other day trying to remember why I was really there when I picked up a 6 foot fly rod. I was quite impressed with this lightweight. I fish in the mountains alot and a 6 foot rod would really suit my fancy. I was just wondering if anyone else uses a 6 foot or 7 foot rod, and how they felt about it. I'm thinking about building one.

I have a 7.5' 3wt from Cabelas that I bought as a second rod to have for such situations.
However, I have grown to like it so much, I fish with it all the time, unless I'm using big ( #8+ ) flies or on big water ( 40'+ wide ).
I'm sure when I get around to getting a good rod, It'll be an 8' 4wt ( somewhere in between ).
