It was a terrible mistake I'll probably regret the rest of my life . A couple of months ago I was fishing with my wife and let her use my 4 weight LL. It's been my go to dry fly rod for 20 years and is almost irreplaceable. She liked it so much better than the fast action 5 weights I own, that now, if we're fishing smaller dries, I can't pry it out of her hands. What sealed the deal, from her standpoint, was wading on her own, casting to a rising fish and landing her largest ever cutthroat (about 18") along with 8 or nine others. She did offer to let me fish the rod if she's not along. Does anybody out there have a suggestion for a similar action 4 weight rod that won't break the bank? (It's for me, the domestic strife I'd get if I tried to swap rods with her isn't worth it.) I could probably get another LL but they're kind of pricey these days (see other thread) and I already (sort of) own one. So the criteria are, 8'6", 4 weight, slow to medium action, under $200. Thanks in advance for your help.
