Default Re: Drag style for 5wt

I use disc drag reels on my 5 wts.

There are two factors in my mind and you have addressed one of them, fish size. The other is how large the river is and how fast the water is. For a fast water large river, a good disk drag is very helpful.

Should you take that rod and reel to the Madison River, you could very well wish you had a disk drag.
