Well my bonus check came and Cabelas ran a free shipping promo on rod & reel combos starting on the same day. So... I ordered the Three Forks / Prestige 3wt combo with line backing and leader for $79.99 plus tax. It wasn't one of my 3 original options but I like my Cabelas 8wt and I just couldn't bring myself to spend almost $300 on the Orvis rig.

It casts nice in the yard so I'll have to get it out on the water this week. Looking forward to tangling with some bluegill!

Once you fish the 3wt, you may never fish the 8wt again. :D

I don't think you can go wrong with Cabelas.

You might be right. The 8wt will likely become a Steelhead/Pike rig and the 3wt and 5wt will be in the dual rod holder. I'm not getting any 8lb bass around here anyway.

I have the Three Forks but in an 8wt, and for $60(or whatever it was) it's good rod. Heard good things about the 3wt too. Good luck with your new rig!

Thank you for posting. I've been looking to get a lighter rod myself and this fit in the budget so I went ahead and ordered one today. It should make all those smaller creek fish a whole lot more fun!

I put my 3 forks up for sale to include a 4wt and 8wt on the market but now I am thinking about keeping the 3wt after all this forum talk! :)

Unless the boss (wife) says you have to get rid of it to get a new rod, I'd keep it. The more I get into fishing the more sense it makes to keep rods and reels even after upgrading. I totally understand budgets though.

You got rid of your 0-3wts? :confused: You must be a deep sea fisherman. :D
LOL! No just wanted to try other rods out and with limited funds I had to part with some to gain another so.
