its a challenge but to me its worth it, no mending, no drag, can fish over fast currents with a direct drag free drift, I enjoy it very much


Interesting. I would like to watch a proficient practitioner at work with such an outfit. I especially am interested in the dry dropper set-up. I rarely fish that rig in the east but almost always use it in Montana on my annual Missouri River trip. I'm always mending to get a better and or longer drag free drift.

I don't have any rods longer than 9' for a light line and that is a #4. All my rods are very fast so I don't know how effective they would be. Maybe I can borrow a light #3 weight 10' rod to try it and then if I like it buy my own.

I'm actually trying to whittle down my fly rod inventory and not buy more!
