A Beginners Guide to Buying a Flyrod

There are many choices when it comes to buying your first fly rod. As an avid fly fisherman for the past 25 years, I've taught a wide range of different age groups and skill levels. This is what has worked best for me and the people I have taught over the years.

Material-A graphite rod, although it is more expensive due to the fact that it is made from a high end material is the perfect choice for the beginner. It will be light and pliable very durable and will provide a smoother cast.

Action-Flyrods come in a wide varity of different actions (bending resistance) slow, medium and fast. Medium action rods are more limber and offer a good choice for beginners since they are easier to use and can handle many fishing conditions.

Weight- 4 to 6 weight: This is also very suitable for trout, panfish and small bass. A 4-weight is perfect for delicacy and finesse, while a 6-weight works best on big waters or in windy conditions. The middle weight - 5 - is the most versatile for trout whether you want finesse on spring-fed creeks or bigger, wider rivers.

Length- 8' - 9': These lengths are good fits for trout and bass fishing. The longer length will give you more casting range and will improve your line control.

Grips-There are many styles of grips and materials used, this will end up being a personal preference. The grip has to be something that you are comfortable using all day.

If you want an all-purpose and well balanced fly rod, look for a 5- or 6-weight rodFree Articles, 8-9 feet in length with a medium to medium-fast action. This combination will tackle nearly all of the fly fishing situations you may encounter.
