Default Re: battling the wind-rod strategy

The first thing that jumps out at me is the 8'6" rod. I fish small streams with a 7'6" 4wt, and smaller streams with a 6'6" 4wt.
I do have a 6'6" 6wt but there's no real advantage.
I fish the small streams on purpose when it's windy as in close quarters like that, the wind is less of an issue
