I wasn't sure if she might need a creek specific rod. If that's the case, you may want her to consider something as light as a 7.5' 3 weight with a medium to medium fast action. With her payloads being so light, she may not need a heavier rod.

Awesome,
This is pretty much what I was thinking. I liked the idea of medium fast in 4 wt. between 7'6" and 8'6"

I've seen some nice 8 foot 4 wt.'s around $149.00
