Default Re: Drag style for 5wt

In many cases a drag is superfluous while trout fishing and a spring and pawl or "check" will do. If, however, you may wish to fish your Zenith #5 on larger rivers where bigger trout have room to run, then the drag mechanism aids in a quicker and safer landing of the fish to be released. So, while I happily fish a spring and pawl CFO on a 4-weight on small creeks, I do use the Hardy U DD 5000 on my Zenith #5.
