In my pm to you I gave you my opinion of what would work for your situation. I have an Echo DH 11' 9" 4wt that will work dandy for the fish size you've listed but I won't be tossing the size and type of flies you will be, so.....I still think a 5 or probably more like a 6 is the ticket for you. Both of these rods will give you the feel of the fish your wanting.
