Predominantly stillwater, but some small rivers.

You can't go wrong with greys. I use a 5wt grx for rivers and it has served me well for years.
Mind you if you want to save money have a look at the flextec rods. A few of us use them and they are very cheap if you play the eBay waiting game.

Thanks DazKat, Just been looking at the Flextec, for those prices you can't go wrong, + I love those types of deals on eBay, I'm usually really lucky , my last bargain was £200 quids worth of Record power woodturning chisels for £30... thanks again, I'll give it a bash and keep you posted.
