You will get a lot of personal opinions on this one, but it really boils down to what you want and feel comfortable casting. I have fished everything from full flex to tip flex (slow to fast) rods and depending on the application enjoy each one. My personal favorite for the mountains and especially small streams is an 8' 4 wt with a nice sloooow action (full flex). Again, this is just personal preference. Stop by Little River Outfitters and ask Daniel to set up a couple different rods with different actions and see what you think.
"Then He said to them, 'Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.'" Matthew 4:19
