The rod I use 90% of the time in the park - 7.3" 2wt TFO Finesse, with a 3wt DT and a furled leader. Just a joy to cast, and almost any sized fish is fun on it.

8 to 8 1/2 foot 4 weight. It will handle everything from small dries, to double nymph rigs and streamers. For general, all-around use I feel it gives you the most versatility.

12' cane pole, stick bait, and a jug o' shine...well, you could do some serious high stickin' with the cane pole, but 8' 4wt fills the bill for me....
