I am thinking the Lamson Konic-2 for my reel, and am trying to nail down a good rod. I am thinking something along the lines of >$200 Any suggestions? I have a 8'6" 5# that I will use for nymphing/streamers etc, and in all honest I have figured out how to present dries pretty well with it, but I just want a nice #4 that I think might be juuust enough to make a difference on some nice Montana trout The Lefty Kreh Finesse Series 8'9" 4# was looking pretty nice, although I think I would prefer a 9' or better. Thanks for the heads up!
I really like my St.Croix 4 wt. Imperial. It's not the best rod out there but for under 200 its worth a test drive. The Imperial line finished quite high in its price bracket and overall with a huge rod review that was recently carried out. Its fast action and I found it quite accurate. Seems to fish comparatively with rods in higher price brackets.
Good luck
