Yonder. I was bitten by the boo bug some years ago. I am going to drop two names for you that are great builders and affordable rods. GMREEVES (on board) and Walter Babb (go through LRO). I met Gm some years back and cast some of his rods. Excellent young man and great quality in work He can definately give you some great advice (or build you a rod). Walter makes a dry fly special in a 4wt or 5wt if I am not mistaken. They are definately a dream to cast. Personally in cane I like a 5wt because they are slower and a 5wt can be used anywhere. Main thing is to research and research then you just have to pull the trigger and buy. DO NOT BUY INTO HYPE just because a certain author prefers one. They are great builders who authors have never met who build for fractions of the price.
