as long as you aren't swinging soft hacles on 6x, or fishing for east coast stocked trout a 5wt will not reduce the fun factor, just reduces the time it takes to land your fish. nothing bad about that. I fish a light 12'7 7wt on the Missouri most when fishing streamers. yes, there is the wind, but I also prefer a scandi (385gr) that will handle a decent size streamer. the same flies on a 4wt would require a Skagit. in the wind, a 4wt, even with a Skagit, would reduce the fun factor drastically. maybe even think about a 6wt.

insta-release not Insta-gram !!

Dog is my co-pilot !

Thanks for the feedback specifically about the 51111, Plock. I have an older 375 gr Skagit Short that I might give a go with if I go with the 5wt. I have read, as you mentioned, that the Scout was a good match, but the Commando was a bit short for the 11’11”.

Besides using the rod in CO/WY, I’m hoping to use it on the Kenai (and hopefully a future DIY float). I watched a guy on the Kenai last year in late Sept. swinging a run and hook up several nice fish....made the bead-bobber program instantly less interesting.

I'm from Laramie and I use a Sage TCX 6119-4 on the Mile. I have a TCX 8119-4 in reserve if the wind really kicks up. The suggestion of a 12'6" 6wt is good.

Now that I have become a more capable caster, I donít care for the super short lines very much. I would recommend going to a spey clave where you can try one of the Nextcast lines, or if you want an integrated line, one of the Ballistic lines sized for your rod. They are more fun to cast and, if you are swinging instead of stripping, much more efficient to use.
