How many times have you wished you could've reached that spot, roll casted a little better, made that mend, or set the hook on a fish? Well, going all the way back to the 80's those who fished the nor cal rivers like the McCloud River, Upper Sacramento River, Pit River, and Truckee River would grab their Scott G in a 10ft 4wt for exactly those reasons.
This is my favorite configuration for trout fishing Northern California. When companies build up their tapers to a 10ft length you get the power of a 5wt fly rod and the finesse of a 4wt. In fact most of my 10ft 4wts get outfitted with a 5wt line. The extra length makes roll casting, mending, and hook setting much easier. Experience the power of ten.
Rivers: Upper Sac, Pit River, McCloud, Truckee, Stanislaus, Tuolumne, Hat Creek, Fall River, and Yuba.
