Default Re: Floating line... WF or DT

If you go to the Rio web site, they show the tapers and lengths of each section for their lines.

I was comparing Trout LT WF and DT...have a look; Trout LT WF - Freshwater Fly Lines | RIO

A lot of DT on smaller rods, anyone ever try the Superfine lines? They only come in WF. They are wonderful on my 2 wt LL.

WF all the way. Easy loading for short and far distance.

I tried all sorts of fancy WF lies over the last 10 years, and couldn't find a difference in any of them. Ended up getting a DT line, and still can't find any difference. SilverCreek and Calftail explained why earlier.

If I'm fishing 50' and further, I need more than my 5 wt. rod anyway.

Usually, expensive!

They seem to come with exotic sounding names, "Windbucker" and such. Detailed drawings on the back of the box. To read the descriptions, you'd think this line will grow hair, lose belly fat and attract wimmen.

None of which ever made any difference.

Maybe you should just use a level line... Get rid of all that fancy schmancy taper engineering mumbo jumbo.

LOL, I was going to post "DT, what's that? cause I've only bought WF lines. Now i'm beginning to see what the difference is. Someday, when I'm smart enough, I too can get upset about about this issue Thanks to all who have been posting because, seriously, this is a great education.

Triangle taper on my BIIx, and WF on pretty much everything else.

The Triangle Taper is really just an extended WF. But, I love them. The taper makes it the best roll casting line ever made, which makes it among the most versatile. Most new anglers never learn or are taught the roll cast.
