    What do you guys have in your arsenal when hunting trout in small streams?

    Did you build your rods in Baghdad?

    My small stream jobs are old Orvis 1 and 2 weights and a lovely little Hardy midge split cane

    My favourite is a little 6'6" 3wt cane rod loaded with 3wt DT Cortland 444 floater. It does everything right for me. I also have a 7'10" 2wt Orvis that I use very infrequently, as well as a 7' 3wt St Croix, amongst others.

    The Orvis Superfine 1wt has a fairly slow action, when you first got it did you have to adjust your casting stroke much? And how quickly does it load?

    when you get to Chris's age, i think you become naturally adapted to the pendulum stroke
