I’m loving my 8′ 3wt WT and am wanting to purchase a more “all-around” WT for some of the more “medium” sized streams around my area. I’ve been considering either the 8′ 4wt WT or the 8.5′ 4wt WT. I’ll be throwing dries, small nymphs (#12 and #14, etc…), and the occasional streamer…does one of these rods make a better all-around rod?
I’ve considered a 5wt but sort of feel like it may be overkill … maybe not though.
Anyway, your opinions and experience are appreciated!
