Ten years ago, Kerry built me a 3 pc 9' 5wt (it carries the wonderful serial # 1000). I needed a rod for a specific purpose . . . Kerry sent me 2 or 3 rods to try. I really liked the 4 wt (I can't remember if it was the 9' or the 8' 9", but I think it was the shorter one — probably 3 pc). A very smooth, lovely rod, but it just didn't have the power I needed for my specific need (a large western, windswept river fishing large flies — salmon fly hatch). I love my 5 wt, but I remember the 4 wt was a wonderful rod. I was tempted, but I couldn't justify the expense (he'd also built me 2 spey rods).
