That's a sweet reel on a nice rod. I own a Clearwater 7' 4wt as well. It's great for those tight places!! That reel may be more than what I might suggest the op (usmcpowerman1) buy as a first reel. That Lightspeed could easily be paired with with a MUCH more expensive rod, like an Orvis Access or Helios 2.
