    Check out the Allen site for reel deals! Great stuff for a great price.

    Why a 4wt for smallies? x2

    I've also liked the reels from The Angler's Roost.

    I have a 4 wt st croix imperial. It's 7"6' so it's great for trout I fish in streams.
    I have it paired with the Allen trout II #1
    It's great.
    How long is your st croix ? It may be light for the larger smallies
    Still would be fun though.
    Most here would probably suggest a 5 or 6 wt for bass

    I use 6-8 weight rods for smallmouths. They can be caught with a 4 weight under the right conditions, but I like a rod that can handle weighted streamers on sink-tip lines and air-resistant poppers.

    You don't need a fancy reel or a heavy-duty drag as long as you have a reel with a palming rim. If you're trying to save a few bucks check out the Cabela's Wind River reel -- normally $30, currently on sale for $20!
