Need assistance selecting rod
Been flyfishing in MT, WY and ID for dozen years or so, and always borrowed a Thomas/Thomas 4 wt fly rod. Wanted to get my own this year for our annual weeklong excursion on the Boulder and Stillwater in MT, but am quite lost where to begin.
I fish dries exclusively and most water I fish is fairly narrow and shallow if that helps put me in any direction. I don't understand the medium, fast tips and what type of fishing situation/casting method they're designed for - so tips on length, weight, action, and brand would be very much appreciated.
I've fished with Sage and Thomas/Thomas and thought they were both excellent - but don't know directions on the models, etc.
Thanks in advance, all.
