The 8' 6" 4wt. features a classic medium/fast action that is perfect for fishing small to medium size rivers and streams.  The classic action loads silky smooth and the slightly shorter length does a great job splitting the difference when accuracy and tippet protection are a must.  This blank is quickly becoming one of my favorites.  When a 9'5wt. is too much and a a 3wt isn't quite enough the 8'6" 4wt. hits a sweet spot.  I have thrown everything from small to medium sized dries, small streamers, and tandem nymph rigs with this rod and it does an excellent job.    This kit contains all of the parts* to build out your rod.

This kit can be customized with the drop down menus to the right.  You can select the grip, reel seat hardware, reel seat insert, and guide set color.  The guide set comes complete with a hand fit tip top, full set of guides, stripping guide, hand fit winding check, and a hook keeper.  You can also select from a number of optional add ons like a custom label.
