I recently bought the cabelas CZN 9'6 3wt and love it. Very reasonable price. I used it at dukes creek last week and it performed beautifully against some 20"+ fish. I put my 5/6wt reel on it and it balanced perfectly.

If you have a 4 weight reel with 4 weight line, you'll probably be fine with a 3 weight rod, even if you decide to fish traditionally.


You really don't need a new reel. The nymphing line is nice to have but its kind of one of those gimmicks they got us on. I keep my floating line on and a long 20' leader and the fly fline is never out of the reel. That way If I want to fish drys or w/e I can. Guys say bring a spare spool with you...but its not faster...you're still going to need to put the fly line thru the guides when you change spools vs. just changing out a leader and its also extra weight to carry. As far as balancing is concerned...The nymphing line is usually shorter by about 45-50 feet so the extra weight of my floating line will balance out a rod well without going larger arbor.
