Evans,

Although there are those who use DT lines, most fly fishermen use WF lines for the simple reason that it is easier to cast further with them than with a DT. Also, there is no reason to use a DT on small streams or with light line, short rods. Some folks use a DT because they think it roll casts better than a WF, which is not true, especially at the typical 20'-30' or less casts made on small streams. Personally, I haven't used a DT line since the 60's
