2 oz. 6'6", 4-piece, Full-Flex Fly Rod for 3-wt. line.Hidden away in small streams and highland lakes from the Rockies to the Smokies, large trout make their way undisturbed and undiscovered. For adventurous anglers, the pursuit of those fish is what drives them, and the Superfine Touch 663-4 is the ultimate rod for those backcountry trekkers. With its ultralight weight and compact size, this rod will go anywhere, and its slow, soft action combines with the added strength of its 3-weight build for those unexpected moments when a 20-inch fish materializes in a stream no wider than the rod in your hand. Made in Manchester, Vermont, USA.

Review 1 for Superfine Touch 3-weight 6'6" Fly Rod—Full Flex
August 14, 2012
"This rod is exactly the right length, weight, flex, and feel for fishing small streams and creeks in the Rockies, as I do regularly. Great for short, touch casting, and very accurate if handled correctly."

Review 2 for Superfine Touch 3-weight 6'6" Fly Rod—Full Flex
"The Superfine line of rods is flat-out sexy. Borrowing a lot of technology from the legendary Helios rod lineup, this rod is surgical on waters that require precise dry fly presentations in tight quarters. You typically sacrifice accuracy and precision for feel with full flex rods, but this is not at all the case with this rod. It is as precise at 50 feet as it is 10 feet and you have all the added benefits of feel that a full flex rod offers. Those wild 6-12 inch fish feel like Steelhead on the end of this rod, but it controls the fish like a champ -- unlike some of the other full flex rods I have used in the past. I love the traditional look of the rod, and with the legendary CFO reel, it is truly has the feel and look of a traditional trout setup but with the benefits of modern technology."

Small Stream Versatility,
May 9, 2011
from LA County
"I purchased the 3wt. 6'6" superfine touch to replace another 3wt. that I had semi-permanently borrowed from my daughter. I set it up with a BBS 1 and 3wt. superfine line. Not only was this rod a great replacement, it is capable of far more than I expected. Like the catalog says it is great at short ranges. It allows accurate fly placement, careful mending and any tricky layout you want to attempt. Additionally, its soft action lets me set the hook on 6" fish without yanking them out of the water and makes them feel much bigger. Yet it still handles larger 12-14" fish with ease and control. The real surprise is how it handles distance casts. The old rod could reach 35-40' Anything more required perfect timing and was chancy at best. I am not a great caster, but the Superfine will easily launch out 50-60' even when waist deep in the stream. This power reserve also stands up to windy days, something I did not feel the superfine 2wt. could handle. My only complaint is the rod I ordered online arrived with quite at few small surface bubbles and wrapping blemishes, nothing that would affect fishability or durability. My local store exchanged it for a much cleaner example, no questions asked."
