I'm looking for a Meiser 12'6' 3-5.
If you have one hiding in a closet that you would be willing to sell please let me know. The 4,5,6 I had for trade has been sold so I'm looking to buy.

Great rod, I wish you luck!

Have one Larry and I wish you luck. One of the most fun 'trouter-small steelhead' rods going. When you cast same, just hold the rod in your finger tips. You can not force cast this rod with a grain weight as low as 250.

I guess I'll have to send Vinny and Guido over for a short visit with you.:D

I am also thinking that the 12'6' 4wt S rod would also be a good candidate.
What lines are you using?
Anyone have experience with the S rods?

The plan is to throw streamers in the upper Columbia this spring for the lunker
browns and rainbows and will also use it on the larger Montana rivers.

Have two lines for same, both from Steve Gotshall. Grain range on this rod is 250 to 400 (lower number for a 3wt, etc.) Can't find the 'cheat sheet' for the 3wt but it's 280 grains, length I'd have to guess at/just under 30.'

The 4wt line is 322 grains at 30.' You can put very light tip grain head on the 4 (65 grains) but what I use are floating or sinking Furled leaders (6' with another 3-4 foot of tippet off the 'tippet ring').

Even with the 3wt, these things lay out straight as an arrow and lightly weighted flies will sink like a small rock. Other option is a 10' floating Polly Leader.
