The 5116-4 is the all around trout rod of the ONE Switch line up. This rod is great for nymphing and fishing beads for trout and char. Just line her up with your favorite floating line.
If early season swinging leeches is of preference, try throwing a light Skagit Switch with a Trout Poly Leader or a light sink tip. Great for smaller rivers in Bristol Bay or the Matsu Valley. Also a great choice for throwing terrestrials on rivers in the Rocky Mountain West or down in Patagonia.
