I don't have anything under a 5 weight. I guess I have been a 6 weight person all my life for trout fishing. Steelhead and salmon 7-10 weights. No good small pond or lake fishing for trout around here like you have out west. Some in Northern Wisconsin, Minnesota, and UP of Michigan, but thats a 6-8 hour drive. Lake Michigan is very close but thats all steelhead, salmon, and browns in an inland ocean. You do not just wade in and catch trout there on a fly rod. Only at certain times can a FF have a shot at them close to shore.
