    That would depend on how small "small" is, and if you want to use the rod for other streams as well. I've got a 2 wt, use it and like, but it's not very useful as a general purpose rod. (For one...

    I have no doubt that any fly of a reasonable size* will take a fish from time to time.

    Some do so more frequently than others, however. There's absolutely no way to know which is which without...

    Not so. I've never caught a trout on one, and I've certainly tried. The problem is, I only ever try it out of desperation, when I already haven't caught anything on an assortment of wets and other...

    7 might be too heavy to start off with. I own about 20 or so cane rods over 8 feet; none use more than a six, and most cast a five. You can always go up; but there's no point in over stressing a rod...
