If you question if higher priced rods are worth the money and you like fishing smaller dry flies try a Winston Tom Morgan Favorite 8 ft 4 weight rod. This is what most would call higher end rod. If your not impressed with this rod perhaps a broomstick with guides and a reel seat will work.

I suck at casting, so I couldn't tell you, but after 4 hours of 12 foot leaders or streamers on the clinch, my arm thanks me for using an expensive rod.

On the small mtn streams, I don't think it matters too much, although I do like the longest rod that I can manage to wrestle through the rhodo.
