RE:looking for single-handed dry line summer rod suggestions

I have the Scott 1196-4 and I think it is a really fun dry fly rod. I have used it to cast Stimulators with a dropper for trout, but I know it would work even better for swinging and skateing. I think that it is not good for the sink tips ( at least for me) so I'm going to put on a floating wind cutter and use the line with tips on another rod. It casts well single handed, but since you have the option, I think you will usually cast it with two. It seems that these lighter rods( like the #7 Sage) are sensitive to being overpowered. Lots of fun. Eddie
