What size fish can a 4wt fly rod handle?
Something 9′-10′ will be perfect in a 2-4wt. The longer length gives you more control in how the fly will swim, the light weight will give you great sensitivity and the ability to fish light line! For moderate to large size rivers a 9′ rod in a 3-5wt will be good.
