    Small Stream Go To

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    If you have a rod in your quiver that is of smaller length and from a 0-4wt think about giving the trout LT double taper line a go. DT lines last longer than WF lines, since they are exact taper from start to end, and you are able to switch them once the life of one end is over.

    Not to mention the taper on the line is not as aggressive as a WF so laying down smaller dry flies with precision and softness is a breeze. I paired this on a 7ft 3 wt for sidewalk streams and bluelines, and it is my go to for the high Uintas.

    Perfect for that 3 or 4 weight

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is the line I have on my Redington Classic Trout/Redington Zero rod and reel combo.

    The feel and accuracy of the LT DT line (double taper) line is incredible for those lightweight rods out there. I have had this line for about a year now and it has held up really well - what else could you ask for?!

    Feel free to reach out if you have questions on this line, any of the RIO products or any fly fishing gear!

    New To Double Taper Fly Lines?

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I had always preferred Weight Forward (WF) fly Lines to Double Taper (DT) thinking that WF would give grater distance. Several folks recommended Rio Trout LT DT on fiberglass and light weight graphite rods. I now concur. It actually gives greater distance on soft to medium fast fly rod actions and turns over the leader very nicely resulting in an accurate delicate presentation of a variety of flies from dry to bead heads. It has a loop on both ends and will last twice as long. I really like this line. It is a typically great Rio Product.

    2 Wt Quick Review

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I purchased the 2 wt and its very supple. No line memory....what I was surprised with is that the 2 wt does not come with welded loops. I assume because it is a 2 wt, you need all the delicate presentation you require without spooking the fish. Loops can potentially scare fish.

    This line rules

      This line rules, just fished a 6 weight for a long weekend on the south slope of the Uintas. The taper is delicate enough to execute roll casts in brush tunnels with fine tippets, but the line still shoots quickly and accurately. This is my go to line for backcountry trips--the redundancy of the double taper plus the wide range of casting effectiveness make it a necessity.
