Was half-price (£90) from Glasgow Angling and worth every penny. It's very light, casts a fair line out (Barrio GT90) and is very forgiving with light tippets - I can't fault it.
I agree a beautiful rod.. Very soft I own one now.. Just getting to grips with her.

Yeah i can see how a 9' 5# would just about cover all of that but apart from the lochs its a very broad stroke, with a lot of scenarios and species left out.

But if you don't drift from a boat, use sinking lines, fish on the coast, target pike, use long mono leaders for nymphig or catch small fish your covered
That's about bang on actually :)

I have a Scott 88-G- series for sale on here a wonderful dry fly rod.
This is where it gets interesting, quality rod but for a dry fly on a river specifically I like a crisp action for precision delivery, I want to be able to lift and lay the fly quick, make sharp quick false casts to dry the fly etc, so look for quick recovery and responsive in a rod.

Is perhaps the ideal dry fly rod just one that suits the way we fish a dry fly?
