I have been out of the flyfishing thing for way too many years. I have done some, but not nearly as much as I like. I know it's like riding a bike. I have a nagging desire to tie flies, leaders and do more fishing, and it's time I respond.

I am looking for a new DT line and don't want to look at commercial avenues to weed thru what is a good DT line. Are you all recommending anything currently? Also, what rods are impressing all of you lately. I tend to be a fast action guy.

Would love some quick personality gear posts. Rod, line, reels and such. Interested in trout set ups.

There are millions of opinions in choices in rods... but, if you want opinions and are looking for a fast action rod at a value, I would buy a TFO - BVK (Temple Fork Outfitters) in a heartbeat... today.

I want one really bad myself, and I've read a ton on them. They do excellent in the shootouts vs other rods exponentially higher in price. They come with a spare tip and lifetime warranty. By all accounts a rocket launcher.

I have casted a BVK often, and I agree that would be a GREAT rod- at a much better price point than others. Good finish too. That said, there are few poor rods today- and a "used" rod is often a closet queen, having never seen much time on the water.


Fall, the BEST time of year!
