Good reasoning. Watched a good you tube video making a similar point. Thanks.

Looking for a smaller,maybe 4 weight,for some of the smaller creeks though.
Went the other day and could catch 12" an under almost every cast.
After just getting the 4 wt Winston, might save a few bucks and get my first Scott rod. Thinking maybe the A4 907-4 as I have heard it's a great rod for the money. Might go cast the 6 and 7 since I have neither but do have an older 8 wt Sage.
