If you want more info, PM me and I'll let you know more about it. We can get into Arkansas too, if you want.

These are just the places that I know that have trout. There are many small-mouth streams, also.

But I know there is no shortage of great fishing down that way as I have a buddy that is from MO and was a hardcore trouter down that way..
Both you guys forgot Crane creek and Mill, which is my new favorite, and Blue Springs which flows opposite my hunting property. There are trout within the STL county limits, but you need to be on the up and up to know them and get access to them. The blue ribbon waters are totally the place to go, they make the trout parks look like garbage.

To answer your question though, keep the BVK and get the One. I would see if the place you're buying from has any Circas, I liked that rod WAY more then the One. I have considered selling my TCX to get a Circa I liked it that much.

Every rod need a backup. Keep it!
When I bought my last rod, the guy at the store asked me if there was anything else I needed. I said, "Oh, I'm way past need and well into want!"

I'd be embarrassed to tell you how many rods I own, but I enjoy casting them and fish most of them. But in the last two years I've fished my Scott S4 8 ft. 3 wt' (A4 is cheaper and as good; my wife uses a 4 wt. A4) more than any others. You might want to consider a quality 3 wt.

Before you buy a Sage One, cast it or at least be sure of the return policy. While I love Sage products (most of my rods are Sage Z-axis), not everyone likes the One. A fly rod is such a personal thing. Apart from being fast, slow, progressive, every quality rod has its own feel and pricetag.

If you enjoy it, keep it. I have a dozen or so rods and have only sold two. One was a TFO Finesse which i hated, and one was a 2 piece 8wt that i had not fished in a decade. If you continue on fishing you may end up with lots of rods, 10 years from now you will grab that first rod out of the pile and fish it while fondly remember your first days fly fishing.

I would have 2. I usually carry two rods on the river, one set up with a nymph set and the other with a streamer or dries depending on the time of year and weather conditions.

The SAGE one is not much more than a more expensive, heavier version of a BVK.
