I have decided to pull the trigger on a Danielsson reel after having purchased a G Loomis IMX Pro-creek 7’8” 3 wt. It looks like my primary choices are the nymph, midge, and dry fly models. Any input on which model to choose would be appreciated.
There's not a lot of difference in physical weight of a Midge and Nymph. Personally, for your application, I would rec the Nymph. A little more capacity (largely unnecessary most of the time with backing) but it allows more latitude with lines.. especially if you use a Double (or extended) Taper.
The discontinued "Nymph Wide" is really a sweet size.. was sorry to see it dropped from production.
