Fly Rod Length

Choosing a fly rod length is a relatively easy decision and quite dependent on where you will be fishing. If you will be fishing a small mountain stream or spring creek with a lot of cover, then a smaller rod will be necessary. On the flip side, if you’ll be fishing medium to large streams and rivers, then a longer fly rod will be in order because it will allow for longer casts and greatly improved line mending. For trout fishing on medium sized rivers or larger, a 9’ or longer rod is generally used. For the largest rivers, a 10’ rod is generally used. On very small rivers or spring creeks, small fly rods in the 7’ to 7.5’ range are generally the most effective and most used.

Type of Fishing

I only fish for trout so my focus here will be limited to trout but even if you’re going for something other than trout, this is still an important consideration. If you’re going to be fly fishing in the ocean or a lake, you won’t want to buy a rod designed for trout as the performance of that rod will be horrible. Even if your focus is only trout, like mine, you’ll still need to consider what type of trout you’re after. If you’re fishing for native trout in a small mountain stream, that will be quite a bit different than fishing for Steelhead on one of the tributaries off Lake Erie. Keep this in mind as we continue to step through the selection process.
