  1. Default Best Dry Fly Rod?

    I'm sure this has been discussed, and it is CERTAINLY subjective, but I'd like to hear what people think.

    So, here is the question: In your opinion, what is the best dry fly rod available? Not concerned about versatility or anything else. A very specialized application. What is the best dry fly rod out there today?

    This is probably the most subjective question you could ask here.

    For me, it would a 9' 4WT and I'll agree with Krebster, make it a Winston WT.

    I had allways thought it was Orvis. However one year I shelled out $1200 for their best Salmon rod and after hooking my first Salmon it broke in 4 parts. The only place open that sunday was Walmart. I ran and bought a $10 Berkley. I caught my limit everyday for two weeks with that rod. Orvis did refund my money. I like a good stiff berkly for Salmon. For trout I use a fenwick eagle.

    Best rod for a dry fly presentation , a lot of variables for that one but I will add my $.02

    In my neck of the woods in a small stream with brookies and browns in the 8-12" range I would say in perfect conditions my elkhorn (pick your favorite brand) one weight. So light you can lay out a cast without as much as a ripple.

    Normal mountain river river 30-40' wide, little bigger fish I love the TXL whether 3 or 4 weight.


    Bigger water I have cast some old bamboo rods that are just a dream to lay 40 feet out like a feather.

    All that in mind I find the TXL in a 4wt is the most versatile in that you can still lay out a dry softly and handle some wind.
