Yea there are a lot of fly reels that don't have sealed drags. Those are mostly intended for freshwater. The point of sealed drag reels is to keep saltwater out of the critical components.

as far as 'waterproof' many reels can take a dunk or even extended dunk but they never intended to stay submerged or to be used underwater

What kind of trout or more importantly what size? A 4 would be good for small ones like Speckled, Brook. You could do a 6 or 7 if you were getting big Browns or Rainbow. A 5/6 would be my recommendation for this reel. If you get hooked on fly fishing you are going to buy several reels anyway. I have different sizes loaded with floating and sinking line.

I am going to Mammoth, CA this weekend and plan on going couple times next year so I assume they have brown and rainbow mainly. I hear they have golden trout at one of the lakes

​I would go with the 5/6. What pole are you pairing with it?

My friend makes custom poles and I texted him but he's not around. Thanks for the reply

Ugh, I'm tempted to get a 3/4 for my 4wt rod. I have an Okuma SLV but I'm not a fan of the diecast aluminum as it seems to dent really easily if dropped (and from 2-3' up). I have a Lamson Konic II and have already dented two spools from short drops in the garage *facepalm* - this was while they were still in their neoprene covers too. So I'm afraid of the day I drop the SLV - it's just inevitable. Picking up forged reels just seems like a good bet. I'd take the strength over weight factor in most cases.

A 5/6wt is a good all around choice for most water.

Reddington, Temple Fork Outfitters and Echo all make great entry level rods.
