I really recommend checking Steve/steeldrifters work out here could build you a great looking and fishing rod for a reasonable price.

but panfish and stocker trout are much more fun to catch on a lighter rod. He said the occasional bass. I took that as if he's fishing for trout and panfish and happens to see a bass, he'll cast to it. Most typical trout and panfish flies are fine on a 4wt. If they primarily want to fish medium to large streamers, a rod 5wt or under would be too light.
If you are picking one rod to fish a bunch of conditions I don't understand the push for a 4 at, I own and fish one regularly however there are also a lot of occasions where it is not enough rod, bass fishing near cover, big trout, if it gets windy if I want to throw a 4 inch rabbit streamer etc. If your only getting one rod it doesn't make sense to get one that is so often going to be smaller than desired, a 6wt will fish small flys or on a nice calm day just fine far better than a 4wt will fish a large streamer or into a headwind.
