Re: Thinking about adding a rod to my trout fishing quiver.
John It is hard to follow after the great advice by previous poster. Ok I too am in your shoes except in PA and not Montana . I am currently heavy modern glass and soft graphite . Little knowledge on faster graphite but for my waters and medium streamers/ medium nymph tandem I am having Mike Mcfarland build 8' 3" S glass 5/6 weight. A fav in fiberglass is also Mark Steffen 's version in this same configuration . Well thought by many to be his premier rod. Mike is good friend hence my decision. Again the previous post was so good you may want to ignore my thoughts. But love your rods as well.
