Looking to get into the sport soon. Any recommendations on a good length / wt to start out with. I was thinking about a shorter/lighter rod (like 7’6” 4wt) to give me a little more freedom with smaller streams. Any drawbacks to that compared to the traditional 9’ 5wt?

The 71/2 footer should be great for small streams but if you're fishing bigger rivers you won't have as much line control for mending and reaching out for a good dead drift.
