It'll work fine. Like I said, my main one is a 7'6". There are times when I wish I'd brought something a little longer, and times when I wish I'd brought something a little shorter.

yeah, after reading this thread i started with the idea of picking up a 6' 2wt to complement my 7' 4wt, and ended up thinking i probably would be better off upgrading my 5wt.

i just bought on clearance a 9' 5wt Redington CPX - $365 down to $170

The subject of which fly rod for a small stream brings out a lot of "your mileage may vary" stuff... Different people like different lengths of fly rod, different line weights, different actions such as fast or slow fly rods. This is still true if you guys talking about even a very small stream say 15 ft wide with a low canopy of trees over it. Just need to get something and try it and then go from there

I echo k-bob's sentiments. I have 5 rods in the 4-5 wt range between 6 & 7 ft long. Some 'boo, some glass and some graphite. I'm either a collector or a hoarder! Some cost beaucoup $ and some were quite reasonably priced. Go with what works for the situation and feels good to you. Tight lines,
