Rio Grand, hands down! I like the Cortland 555 Dyna Tip too. Both lines cast superbly and float really well, but in my opinion, the Rio is the winner. It casts almost automatically...OK, an...

Here in Arizona most every stream is small and brushy...so small rods are a fact of flyfishing life if you're not on a lake. Its a ton of fun to catch even 1/2 to 1 lb trout on these rods!

For dry flies and wet flies in water that's neither very deep nor with a lot of current, a floating weight forward or double taper line will probably serve you just fine. I personally believe a...
