WTB 4wt

I am looking to buy a used 8' 4wt. I want something fast or medium-fast. (played with a st. croix imperial and loved it) The only particular thing that I want is a wooden reel seat. If you have anything sitting around that fits the bill let me know. (will consider 7'-6" to 8'6") Looking for a reputable brand and I would like to keep it at or under $100. I live in the Harrisburg area.

Thanks -

What did you get?

...I'd ask how you like but the outdoors prohibits me from doing that with a straight face.

It is a Cabelas Stowaway, nice little 7'6" 4wt and decent price. It is just what I was was looking for. My 9' 5wt is a little long for me in small streams. I didnt want to spend a lot because trout, for me, are on the back burner to bass and other warm water fishing. I tried to fish last Sunday and didnt bring a shovel. Got my jeep stuck for about 15 minutes after trying to park, hand to dig out with my hands...I will be waiting a little bit before I try the rod out!

Well, at least you had fun...please report on the stowaway when you get to use it. I have considered one of those on more than one occasion.

Tomgamber,


the stowaway is a good not to expensive rod and it comes with the cabelas gaurentee, so really you cant beat it

Thanks...what's the action like. I would be looking at for a bigger rod. Not even for me actually. 7 or 8 wt longer the better. How does it do in that category?

Tom,

I'm not sure how it would do in the 7-8 weight models as I've never tried them but the reason I initially bought the 4 wt. was a review that I read by someone (credible, can't remember who) that took the 8 wt. stow to Alaska and caught hundreds of salmon, steel, and big bows and loved it...

Finally got to put a bend in her. Nothing huge, but really like this rod, throwin a 5wt line in tight it is great....much better than my 9' rod on this particular creek.
