I can't speak from Tenth Level expertise, but I used to be a regular on Idaho's Silver Creek, where I used a 5-weight, which seems to be useable even in demanding conditions about 90% of the time. I have a 3-weight midge outfit, which I used there last summer. Since it allowed me to duel successfully even with the old rainbow residents there (which I suspect, are reincarnated loan sharks), I can't see a need for anything lighter. I mostly use 4-weights for my small-stream and small-dry fly fishing; they can handle a bit of wind and No. 14 flies.
