Hello!

I am looking for opinions on DT lines for my trout rod ( old 6 wt 9ft Kilwell ) Casting style is mostly spey type.

For dry fly puritans - Yes, I have a seperate rod reel set for dry-fly fishing : )

Hi Nick - I would think any good DT would work but I am a huge fan of Wulff TT lines - they have a long front taper so are great for in close delicate spring creek stuff and have a fine running line so shoot like crazy! You can do a switch cast with the head and short section of running line out and blast off a cast over 80 feet!!
