Clearwater 4wt - Orvis Clearwater reel. Seemed the obvious choice.
The two St Croixs both got Ross Flyrise 2s. I was told the Flyrise has the same drag as the Evolution II - similar to the Lamson Konic/Guru, just a few bucks cheaper. I pondered the Konic. It's a little "clicky" for me though. While there is very little difference mechanically, the Guru felt much smoother. So it came down to spending even more money on something like the Guru (which is actually heavier) or the Flyrise. So, I decided on the Flyrise.
