Douglas Outdoors builds awesome rods. The DXF rod series won the best mid-priced rod award by Yellowstone Anglers. Each rod is dialed in for what it's fishing scenario. I highly recommend this rod for euro nymphing. I am currently looking to upgrade my euro rod and this one is on my short list.

That sweet spot between Bull Trout and Steelheads. The DFX's weight is perfect for swing nymphs or streams through the strike zone. BONUS: A great rod for stillwater.

The DXF was made to do it all and at a 9' 5wt that's exactly what it will do! It throws heavy nymph rigs and softly lays down dries.
