Appreciate that this subject comes up from time to time but looking for up to date opinions that may have been affected by any recent market developments.
Thanks for your views in advance.
Richard, that's precisely why I always buy DT lines for river work! And the fact that they're so easy to transfer from reel to reel -- I have more reels than lines and move lines quite often...Other than you get two lines for the price of one, why Double Taper instead of a Weight Forward line?
Richard, I feel a lot more confident with a DT on a river for presentation not only when roll casting but hook and curve casts.Other than you get two lines for the price of one, why Double Taper instead of a Weight Forward line?
Thanks for your suggestion about the Rio but am now waiting for Santa to deliver a DT#5 from a different manufacturer.The best river line I have tried is the Rio Trout LT DT and I have them in #2 and #4.
Bit expensive but if you shop around they come up discounted every now and again.
I think I got the last one on eBay from USA and it was a lot cheaper than buying here.
I don't see there's much difference in presentation between a DT and WF once you get to something like a #5 as you are probably fishing wider rivers or small stillwaters with bigger flies and the longer running line of a WF makes it easier to shoot.
