I may be in the market for a new fly rod but my budget is limited (like everyone elses right now I suspect). I am interested in a 4 weight, 9 ft rod for use primarily in the tailwaters. Essentially I am looking for a rod that can throw line a good distance with moderate accuracy and will make a 12-16" trout seem like a whale. I started out looking at the Sage Flight and St. Croix Legend rods but my upper budget for the rod may be in the $200 range so I am looking for something cheaper.
Any thoughts on a rod that might fit the bill? A brand available at LRO would, of course, be ideal...
