Default Re: WF or DT on your small creek rods?

I have a 8,6 #5 (which in Iceland is considered light) that I have a Trout LT, DT and I just love that line. Lives fully up to its name of Light Touch, as it almost completely silent. Perfect for small Nymphs, Dries & Micro & Hitch tubes.

After reviewing this thread, I'm going to buy a DT line for my next 4 wt. line. I need to replace Rio Gold 4 wt. line, as it is shot. I really need to give DT a try, not only for the type of fishing I do with it, which is less than 40 ft of fly line out most of the time, but also for the fact that I'm tired of dropping so much money on fly lines. When I think of how many reels and spools I have and all the lines.... it's a lot of coin. If I can double my usage of my smaller line weight lines, I'm all for it. The 4 wt. will be my test run.

For those of you that do use DT lines, when you "flip" them to the next side, do you have coiling issues?

Cheers,
Mike.

If you have a DT and don't cast more than 50', why not keep half of it - 45' - on the reel; you can use a running line or backing to fill the spool.

Back when, it was not uncommon to cut a new DT line in half and store one half in large loops away from heat and light, the enemies of PVC.
