Default Fly rod for my wife

Hi folks,

I'm new to this forum, but I have an immediate need, which is to buy a fly rod for my wife. She is new to fly fishing and will be fishing the small to medium sized streams here in N Idaho, Montana, and Washington. Most of my equipment is 5 and 6 weight rods. I know of the Winston Joan Wulff WT 5 wt rod made specifically for women, but are there others? Is it important to find a rod built specifically for women or am I correct in thinking that any good rod will do? I also would like to have her learn on a good quality rod that will serve her needs long term. I'm partial to the slower actions which are now called med-fast and thought this action would also be good to use while learning to cast. Do any of you folks have some thoughts on any of this?

Thanks for any of your ideas.

Bob
