The LT rod excells at throwing line with ease, but also is soft enough to protect the lighter tippets often required for east coast trout. My favorite is the 8 foot 9 inch 3 weight LT. It is a great dry fly rod, and is a perfect Gunpowder rod. The length is perfect for nymphing pockets or riffles, and the butt section is strong enough to throw a big bugger down and across river. The tip section is soft for protecting tippets, but helps direct small caddis or adams under branches with accuracy. The softer action gives the eight inchers a much bigger feel. If you’re tired of a stiff rod, the LT rods are for you.
