The Douglas DXF series has long been a favorite of ours since we saw how well it performed in our 5-weight shootouts. It has become our favorite mid priced rod, featured in several of our outfits because it's a serious bang for your buck deal. The DXF switch is no different and despite being a mid priced rod we are giving it the designation of the Ultimate Trout Switch rod because, simply, it is the best.

Whether you are planning on swinging flies from the bank or nymphing out of a drift boat, this is the best trout switch rod around. The swing weight on the Douglas DXF was one of the lightest in our Shootout giving you great sensitivity and in hand feel. It is powerful as well and will make turning over heavy indicator rigs or spey tips easy. It is also one of the better trout switch rods to set the hook with when you see your indictor go down thanks to its strong butt section, something we noticed a lot of rods not doing so well at.
We have matched this rod up with our favorite mid-priced trout switch/spey reel, the TFO 375. When we heard that TFO was discontinuing this reel we made sure to buy up as many as we could, this may be the last of the TFO L.A. 375's left! This reel is amazing for the money. It is strong, durable, reliable, and incredibly smooth. We are confident this will be a reel you own for a very long time if not forever. On the reel we will spin up the appropriate amount of backing as well as a Rio InTouch Switch line. This line has its own integrated running line, a long belly which is good for mending, and a thick head for turning over heavy indictor rigs and flies. Last but not least we'll add one of our hand tied trout switch leaders so you'll be ready to fish, right out of the box.
