Re: The quintessential 8ft 4 wt?

Tom Morgan made the 8' 4wt his favorite, and I like that size and weight for an all around small stream rod...a TMF should be at the top of the list, its a great classic rod. As Tom put it, more like...

If they work, tie up some more...or...

This IM6 TMF isn't going anywhere, it will remain with me and be passed down.
