Re: George Anderson's "4-Weight Shootout"
I personally prefer a fast action 4wt. I feel i can make as delicate as a short dry fly cast as slower rods. Where I fish in the driftless area of wisconsin
the winds can get pretty strong blowing through those valleys and its nice to a have a little power as so your line doesnt blow clear off of a small 5' or 6' wide stream. I like the option of a little punch to get that line working to bust the wind.
