Personally, I do not think you need anything over 8' for wade fishing-excluding HS as previously stated. However; a longer rod is useful for some people when fishing from a boat.

The key is getting it paired with a good line taper. I would look for a shorter line and line taper if you are fishing the tight streams and utilizing shorter casts. You will find that accuracy and control are phenomenal.

The IM7 graphite fly rod blanks are one of the best fly rods I have ever used.
You will see one in my hands most of the time.
