Douglas Outdoors DXF Fly Rod


One of the best mid-priced rod we’ve found.


The DXF line of fly rods is a strong and resonant collaboration of modern action, Douglas’ fresh carbon matrix and, an exquisite fit and finish.

They range from traditional single hand rods, Euro nymph, switch, and two-handed rods tailored toward every current angling practice. The DXF has a moderate/fast action that mixes power and presentation very well.

It might not be the most powerful rod out there but it is very versatile, light, and responsive. So much so that we’ve named the DXF the best mid-priced 5-wt in our shootout the past few years and it’s still at the top.

The DXF series has a rod for everyone, from small stream brookie fishing to big blue water the DXF has a rod with your name on it.

The 5 and 6 weights make great all-around rods for trout in their 9-foot length and the 10-foot models are great for guides or people who fish from the boat a lot.
