How To Pick A Fly Rod

Fly rods are primarily classified by weight. Weights are available from 1 all the way up to 16. The higher the number, the thicker, stronger and heavier the rod. The weight of the rod will also need to match the weight of the fly line. For example, if you've got a 5wt fly rod, you'll need 5wt fly line.

You'll also need to choose the right length. The vast majority of fly rods are about 9' long, with shorter or longer rods available for specific fishing scenarios.

If you're just getting started, we recommend an 8.5' or 9' rod in a 4, 5 or 6 weight along with the corresponding fly line. If you have additional questions or need something extra special, just give us a call or stop by to speak to a knowledgeable product expert.
