I've now spent over a dozen or so hours on the water with the Guideline Power Taper DDC and find it easy to cast and it fishes very well. When comparing a skagit set up on the same run, the DDC intermediate head gets down deeper with a lighter head and swings a good 30% slower. One of the best things I like about it is the connection I feel to the fly. So what are your experience or comments about this line? By the way Shotgunner thanks for turning me on to this line. James.
