Sorry, but I have to disagree with the statements about never having to cast or use a drag system on the smokies streams. I've lost 2 good fish in the mountains because I didn't use my drag properly. When a big fish gets in a swift current and heads downstream with your line, you don't just muscle him over to the bank like its 20 lb trilene.

My favorite all purpose smokies rod is a 9' 4wt.
