Default Re: one wt over another

Ok thanks, I had thought that was the way things worked but had a hard time finding any info that gave me a hard answer. Yes my rod I got is a 4/5 that I got on a starter kit 7 years ago now by the Cortland company. Cant cast worth anything in a wind but calm it works nice. I looked up at the Cortland web site and they had many rods from 3/4 to 9/10 wt.
I am sure a #4 would do fine on bigger stream trout since an ultra light rod can handle it. Some of our favorate spots it was hard to get a fly rod in due to the tree growth, we then used small spinners and cranks (trout love yo zuri gobies and kili fish). The thing the fly rod has is the length making fish control easy. Though I use to catch nothing but small fish the 9' rod made it easy to control the fish for fast easy catch release.
