    Hey welcome to the forum! I'd chance a bet that it'll take a 6wt, it seems 6 was the most popular weight rod back then. If you have the lines to try or a shop with demo lines try everything you can from a 7wt down to 4 but like I said I'd bet its a DT6.

    Just did a search on another forum () and folks talked about liking 5 and 6wt lines with them. x2 for what wt bash said, if you can get a range of lines on it and see what you like. You might like a different line than the next person.
