    I know I asked this on the old GFO but lets try again. Buying a 5 wt line and wonder what oyhers use=WF or DT.
    Follow up question would be why?

    What are you planning to fish for? Unless I was fishing dry flies, I'd go with the WF.

  3. WD hit it on the head. I'll add that you had better be a fairly accomplished caster if you want to use a DT. I used a WF for native and stocked rainbows in PA as well as for brookies. A DT may require a little longer leader but it will settle gently if you cast it properly.
  4. I use both but a wtf more then Dt a double taper is the same as a wtf at the first 30 ft guess it just depends on what and where your fishing.
