I can remember buying my first fly rod from L.L. Bean in Freeport, Maine when I was 7. An Orion 6 Weight that I would use for some smallmouth bass fishing, landlock salmon fishing and brook trout fishing. As I learned more about casting and the actions of Fly Fishing rods I naturally wanted other fly rods in different sizes and I got them but over the decades the one fly rod I have always kept near me, the first fly rod that lit a fire.

I now hope to provide those who come here with my knowledge and expertise in the Fly Fishing industry and suggest fly rods that I know are of high quality and the company will stand behind their product 110%.

How to Choose a Fly Rod

Fly Rod Weight

Fly fishing consists of casting artificial flies that have low weights and densities because casting such a light weight item would be difficult with regular fishing line, fly rods are designed to cast weighted fly line. The weight of the fly line makes it possible to cast an unweighted fly, unlike conventional fishing where the weight of the lure carries out the line. A fly rod’s weight rating denotes the weight of line that should be used with it. If you have a six weight rod, it’s made to be fished with a six weight line.

There are several things to consider when trying figure out which fly line weight is best for you. Of them, the type of water you’re fishing (the distance of your casts), prevalent weather conditions, fly size and fish size are most important. Typically, the larger the fish, heavier the fly, larger the body of water and stiffer the wind, the heavier weight rating your fly rod should have.

Fly Rod Length

Fly rods are generally longer than conventional fishing rods, but like conventional rods come in a variety of lengths. The shorter fly rods, 6-8 ft., are excellent for small creeks with many obstacles to cast around. Longer fly rods, 8-10 ft., work well in larger bodies of water where lengthier casts are necessary to reach fish. These types of rods are ideal for nymphing waters with complex currents. Rods of this size help you reach over contradicting flows and obtain a better drift. Rods longer than 10 ft. are typically spey or switch rods.

Fly-Rod Materials

Each rod material has its own advantages in each situation.

    • • Graphite Fly Rods – The introduction of graphite into the fly fishing world in the early 1970s was an absolute game changer. For the first time, manufacturers could make rods that were light, strong, extremely sensitive and very durable. Ever since then, manufacturers have continued to make great strides graphite rod technology, and today most of the highest-performing rods are graphite.
    • • Nano-silica resin Fly Rods – This fly rod technology pushes the benefits of carbon fiber (graphite) to a whole new level. Hundreds of thousands of nano-silica particles are infused into the resin that fills the gaps between the cross sections of the carbon fibers. This makes the resin a structural component of the rod rather than just a fill-in, making it stronger and more powerful.
    • • Boron Fly Rods – Boron was originally used for aerospace design. Boron has since been applied to fly rods with success. When added to graphite, boron makes a rod stronger, lighter and more sensitive.
    • • Bamboo Fly Rods – As the traditional rod material, bamboo fly rods will always hold a special place in the fly fishing community. While bamboo has a slightly faster rate of recovery (action) than fiberglass, it still creates slower rods than carbon-fiber materials. Some like bamboo strictly for the nostalgia. Others like it for the same reasons they like fiberglass. Bamboo rods are typically heavy when compared to graphite and fiberglass, but a finely made bamboo rod is a pleasure to cast.

Ain t it great? There s no right or wrong answers here. Only what works for you. Clearly slower action rods work for you along with the romance of bamboo.
