Double Taper - Weight Forward Line

A double taper fly line is a type of fly fishing line that has the same weight distribution at both ends, with a thin running line in the middle. This design creates a smooth casting stroke and delicate presentations, making it ideal for dry fly fishing and short- to medium-distance nymphing. 

Here are some of the advantages of using a double taper fly line:

    • Delicate presentations: The thin running line allows for delicate presentations, which is important when fishing for wary fish.
    • Smooth casting: The even weight distribution throughout the line creates a smooth casting stroke, which can help you achieve longer casts.
    • Versatility: Double taper lines can be used for a variety of techniques, including dry fly fishing, nymphing, and streamer fishing.
    • Durability: Because they can be reversed when one end wears out, double taper lines can last longer than weight-forward lines.

However, there are also some disadvantages to using a double taper fly line:

    • Limited casting distance: Due to the even weight distribution, double taper lines are not as good for casting long distances as weight-forward lines.
    • Bulkier on the reel: Double taper lines take up more space on the reel than weight-forward lines, which can limit the amount of backing you can carry.
    • More difficult to mend: Mending line is a technique used to correct the position of the fly on the water. Double taper lines can be more difficult to mend than weight-forward lines.

Overall, double taper fly lines are a good choice for anglers who prioritize delicate presentations and smooth casting. If you are primarily fishing for small fish in small streams, a double taper line is a great option. However, if you need to cast long distances or fish for larger fish, a weight-forward line may be a better choice.
