  1. I could own this rod and never want another 4-weight. It casts progressively with touch, line speed, control and most of all, feel. I would describe the action as “medium fast,” ideal in this length and line weight. I first cast this rod with a Scientific Anglers Trout Taper, which throws beautiful loops but allows for a little bit of tip bounce inside of 25 feet. Beyond 25 feet, it’s a dream. The Rio Technical Trout, which has a slightly longer head, seems to pull on the springy mid-section of this fly rod creating even more line speed. Either line would be great with a dry fly, but the Technical Trout will kick over a dry dropper or indicator with a little more authority. I love how light this rod feels at every distance. It has a lively response to a gentle double haul but doesn’t require a haul to tap power in the butt section. This is a rod that will throw most of the fly line without using a haul stroke at all. It’s all about loop control and progressive acceleration. The 8 ½’ #4 doesn’t feel stiff, but fishes in a tremendous range. Nice rod, Winston.
