    I'd go with the 4 and 6. It pretty well covers most things.

    Choosing between the two options, I would pick the 4 and the 6.

    Specifically, an 8'6" Winston WT (4) and a 9' Sage Z-Axis (6).

    If I was only a warm season angler in this area, then I'd say a 4 & 5 would make a nice duo. But when the late fall & winter fisheries get going, the 6, 7 & 8 weight systems start playing a greater role.

    I have to own all of them. 4,5,6,7,8 8/9 and a 12. Far too many different sized bodies of water and species to limit myself to just two.

    Fortunately I have a 2wt, 3wt, 4wt, 5wt, 6wt, 8wt, & 11wt.
    Now I need a 7wt & 10wt.
    You missed 9 and 12.

    Well, yeah, me too, but that wasn't the question.

    It's like the kid who knows he wants ice cream, but his mom says the choice is broccoli or carrots because they are good for him!

    I started with a 5. I replaced it twice before I bought a 4. Replaced it once and then bought a 6. Remember not all rods are alike. Two of the same line weight can cast and feel completely different. If I had to use one rod it would be a 5 one.

    I personally use a 4wt and a 6wt..covers every species I fish in my area..Ozark streams and small rivers in Missouri
