Douglas DXF // Single Hand Trout Rods
Douglas Outdoors has won multiple awards with their DXF lineup of trout rods. In addition, they also make nymphing rods, trout spey, salmon steelhead, saltwater, and two-handed rods in the DXF lineup. The DXF is an award winning rod series; it also happens to be a great priced, mid-range fly rod that is both crisp and smooth when casting. You can feel each cast and shoot line easily as the rod comes alive when the casts get longer.
We took this rod and put it thru our test "protocol" and came away impressed with the cast quality, the feel- especially the loading of the rod, and it's ability to step out of the "dry fly" box when throwing streamers. If you want fancy wraps, select wood or big name, there are plenty of rods out there that will work just fine. If you would like a work horse rod, that you can beat up and fish all day, this rod will do it.
