    I prefer a high mileage 10w 40w myself. Exxon is having a special on the Yellowstone as we speak.

    Everyone knows a 6 weight is better.

    No, no, no. You use a 4wt but load it with a 6wt line. Then it casts like bamboo without costing $3,000.00 for a fishing rod.

    If it is bamboo, isn't it referred to as a "fishin' pole"?

    Dear Brian,

    But will I be able to feel every wriggle, flip, and/or twist exerted by a mighty 5" Shenandoah brook trout with that rig?

    Regards,

    Tim Murphy;)

    I am not sure, and I suspect you might be a pervert for wanting to feel all that wriggling, twisting, and flipping. It just sounds dirty.

    But the "Orvis Superfine Troutbum" model was a 7' 4wt not a 5wt!
