WTB: 10' 4 weight.

I'm interested in purchasing a 10' 4wt for Chironomid fishing this spring. I'm not too sure of all the manufacturers that had a rod of this configuration in their line-up - so if you have one that you don't use, anymore - drop me a line.

Thanks in advance!
Huw.

Hi,
You may already know this but I found that 4wt rods are too light for BC trout, even when chironomid fishing. My go to rod is a 6wt GLX 10footer. You'll like connect into large Kamloops and will want the stiffer rod for a variety of good reasons.

My two cents,
Gordon

Thanks for that, Gordon.

However, 95% of my fishing is done near my home on Vancouver Island - and a 4 weight is more than adequate - as a large stillwater fish here runs about 25''.

However - when I do journey into the interior - I still prefer my 4 weights and find a 6 weight more stick than necessary.

Everyone's mileage seems to vary on that one, though!
Thanks again!

Given that he is from Vancouver Island and the trout on the Island are on average quite a bit smaller than interior B.C. trout, and assuming he is going to be fishing the island lakes much more than the interior lakes, I personally think the 4wt will be much better suited to the task than a 6wt.

Guideline offers in it's LeCie model range, 10 footers running from 3 wt. to 8 wt.

The 4 wt. version is a medium fast action in three sections. I have the 3 wt. medium action version and it's a sweetheart. Some of the members in the Canadian Fly Fishing team are using this same LeCie 3 wt. as their Czech nymph rods. Talk to M&Y about ordering a 4 wt. if you wish. One nice thing, it's a real 4 wt., not a 5 wt. in disguise.

sage has a really great 10 foot 4 weight

the Z axis ten foot four weight is really a great rodd,that is coming from a guy who has in the past never even given the sage line a chance. i'm a confirmed G Loomis fan. but recently i cast this rod and i'd take it to our Erie tribs and swing/dead drift for some fun and feel completely safe, i mean the butt on the rodd is what you use to fight fish and on rods 10' and over usually you have a hellish butt.Also theres a 11' 5 weight z axis switch.But i think my income tax return will be buying my first Meiser 15 ' four weight spey.Bob has one hes been tweaking and i really think that rod will work great on The Lehigh as well as the Delaware River where i use my G loomis Trout Spey.
hope this helps

Yeah - my one lament in life is that I'm not a richer man - am I the only one who feels like that?
Ha ha - didn't think so!

Anybody have a 1004-4 Scott E2 they'd let go for a reasonable price?

I have one, but you can't have it! Hahaha. Awesome rod. Have you checked out the new Greys rods? The streamflex series has 10 foot 3, 4 and 5 weight rods. I think if you google it you'll find they're resonable. Under 300.

I have a rod that I think would be perfect. Let me know if you are interested.
