    I have a fly rod that i should probably learn how to use this year. Fishing from my kayak is something i have not done. I could from my Swifty, but i think i would end up in the water if it tried with my Corona.
    Maybe one day i will mod the swifty for fishing, but i don't have a strong desire to kayak fish.

    I like my dt lines..... mess up the end of it enough and you just flip it. I reserve the wf for the 8wt

    I was going to go for a DT because they roll cast better. it is more of a brand/color choice, price point decision

    took it out in the back yard and did some casting in the rain. it tosses the line out nicely. I had to back off on the wrist action to let the line settle down instead of cracking the tip down hard. I think this is going to be a fun small stream set up. the rod is a little faster action than I am used to so i will have to pay more attention to my casting technique.

    Gotta get one this year. It's been too long since I ate fresh fish on my camping trips.
