    Double tapered or weight forward??

  • #2
    Both have their time and place...I like using WF lines in windy conditions as they really improve casting distance and accuracy...

      WF, a lot easier to manage

        For brook trout on a small mountain stream it's dt. If I'm pushing a big ugly fly through the air then its' wf. If I have a larger river covered with trees where I have to roll cast then it's dt. If it's windy then it's wf.

        If it's a small mountian stream covered with trees and windy and I'm casting a big ugly fly then I go home.

          Weight foward for bass (I don't really fish for trout in the winters.)

            DT is the way to go round here, we use weighted nymphs alot,

                Since the wind can blow at any time in Wyoming or Montana I almost exclusively use WF, often with big nymphs or flies plus a tiny weight.

                  Depends. I can't shoot a DT more than 30 ft in my 7 ft 4wt, so switched to WF. But I use DT for everything else up through 5wt. 6Wt and up are all WF.

                    depends all on weather conditions, if its windy (which is very frustrating) WF, otherwise i usually like DT

                      DT for calm waters, WF for windy or long casts.

                        Have always been a WF guy, but really considering DT for the "end swap" bonus.

                            It is a mixed bag going forward. Some refiners have closed and no new ones will be built (approved). Everything will be based on supply and demand....
