Cool Looking for a Good Small stream Rod?

I'm looking for a good small stream rod that won't break the Bank? Do you guys out there have any suggestion? I was thinking on a 6 1/2 to 7 ft rod in 4w class?

I use a St. Croix triumph. It's a 7.5ft 4wt. Isn't too expensive. Under 100

Last I checked (and ordered) Cabelas glass rods were 69 bucks. That's short money for what you get, but it's glass and some don't like it.

I have a Redington 7 1/2 foot 3 weight Classic Trout that I like for fishing the small stuff. I think it ran me about 150 bucks.

Cabelas TQR Rod... I got the four piece 7.5' 3 wt. I love it. It packs small for good travel and it cast great! I fish most small rivers with it and find fighting a nice 12-14" fish feels like a trophy!

I highly recommend a 3wt in a 7-8 ft. range for small streams. I built mine out of a 4 piece blank. I made it with the intention of using it for small brookie streams and backpacking, but I find myself reaching for this rod over any other rod most of the time. It casts like a much bigger set up and it is much easier to swing around in tight spots.

I Agree with the statement above... a lot!
