I just started fly fishing this year and have been using an 8' 4wt Redington CT and I do like it when I have lots of line out but on my smaller streams where I often only have a few feet of line out, not so much. I also find the length just slightly too long for some places. I am getting ready to purchase something lighter and a little shorter to over-line with a 4wt line. I am thinking either a 2 or a 3wt CT since I really like the action and quality of the rod for the price, I just want something that feels softer and lighter that's still capable of roll casting a 4wt line without a lot of line on the water. I don't have anywhere to go and try rods before purchase. I have tried a couple glass rods and they are interesting and kind of fun but not really for me, I'd much prefer something graphite with a similar feel to glass without being quite as noodley. If any of y'all have a 2wt CT and feel it could easily be over-lined with 4wt for short casts, please let me know; it seems that purchasing a 3wt when I have a 4wt may be a bit redundant.
