I'm thinking about getting into flyfishing, and am trying to decide what type of rod and reel combo to purchase. I've been looking in Cabelas at the St. Croix Imperial combo, St Croix Avid combo, and a Fenwick HMG Combo. I'll be using the combo primarily for trout fishing, and need a versatile rod that will allow me to fish with nymphs as well as dry flies. I've been thinking about getting a #4 weight rod, probably 8 1/2 to 9 ft. Is this too light?
Any suggestions or comments? ANY help would be appreciated.
