Barrio line match for Reddington Classic Trout, 7'6'' 3#?
« on: October 30, 2020, 18:05:20 PM »
I am new to the forum and relatively new to upstream dry fly fishing and have recently purchased a Reddington 7'6'' 3# Classic Trout for carrier fishing on local chalk streams. I am considering a 3# DT Mallard line from Mike but would be very grateful for any views on this combination or alternative views/experience/recommendation of a suitable Barrio alternative?  Equally, whether a DT or WF line would be the best option. Very grateful for any feedback.  Thanks.

For more compact fishing spots where access is often tighter and it's a benefit to load the rod quickly - but still fish with finesse - then personally I'd look at the Barrio Smallstream over a DT.
Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience ;)
