Default Re: Fly Reel for a 4wt

I agree that a large arbor isoverkill on a 4 wt and probably would throw the balance of the outfit off...the mountain brooke is fine...in fact I have one that I use with my 4 wt Avid on occassion..It is a standard reel and balances really nicely with the Avid. I have DT4F on it. I most often use an Orvis BBS with RIO Selective Trout WF5F on my 4 wt. I will say that once you use the Avid for a while....your 5 wt Imperial will become your backup rod . The Avid is a delight to cast.
