New to fly fishing or not sure what you need? Consider these questions as a general guideline when determining the weight, length, and action of your new fly rod:
You’ll want your fly rod to be built with anti-corrosive materials if you’re fly fishing in saltwater.
Typically, two-handed rods are used for targeting anadromous species, but do not overlook them for land-locked species like trout and smallmouth bass.
This will help determine the weight of the fly rod. Here are some general guidelines: Trout and Small Panfish – 1-6 weight; Smallmouth, Largemouth, Carp, Bonefish, Jacks, Sea Trout – 6-9 weight; Permit, Snook, Redfish, Striper, Muskie, Pike – 8-11 weight; Tarpon, Giant Trevally, Sailfish – 10-12+ weight.
This will also help determine weight, but also the action of the fly rod. General rules of thumb: Dry flies – 1-5 weight / slow to fast-action; Nymphs – 2-5 weight / medium to fast-action; Streamers – 3-6 weight (freshwater), 6-12+ weight for big game freshwater and saltwater / fast action.
Answering this will help determine the length and action of the rod. For small streams with a lot of overhanging brush you will want a shorter rod with a slower action so you can cast from under canopy or roll-cast with ease. For bigger water with fewer back-cast restrictions, a longer rod will allow for better line management and a faster action will easily power through wind.
Contact us if you have any questions at all. We want to help ensure your fly rod is a good fit and will enhance your experience on the water.
