While I don't NEED another fly rod, I WANT another fly rod. It should be easy. Problem is I can't find much available to cure this particular craving.
Anybody out there have any recommendations for a 6' rod for 3 or 4 wt line in a 4 piece configuration ? How about suggestions on a small, light reel to complete the combo ?

I would try to find a 6ft 2wt Orvis Superfine Trout Bum. Cast is dreamy and paired with a CFO it would be pretty sweet.

I saw this thread when you first put it up and even after a few days I still don't know of a 6' 4 piece rod I could recommend. Why 4 Pc. is it for backpacking?

I have a 6'3" and two 6'6" rods, all of them are 2 Pc. If you were to consider a 2 piece and I'm guessing this is for small streams............ I'm going to snatch up one of the Hardy 6' glass rods this fall. I don't need it but I better have one just in case.

I was given a bass pro short rod, I believe it's a white river classic. 5'8" 4wt. The guy who gave it to me liked it but thought it was a little short, I fish with it most of the time. Anything under 30' or so wide and it's in my hand. Not a high end rod but it get high marks from me! That being said I have no comparison to it from another brand.
