Fly fishing is one of the best if not the best types of fishing. It is beautiful, both to watch and to take part in. The movements involved in casting a line are a joy to watch. All over the country you will find exhibitions where non-anglers come to watch expert fly fishermen executing wonderful moves.

Nobody really knows the exact origins of the sport, but we do know that it is amongst the oldest if not the oldest form of angling. There are writings that go back as far as the 3rd century A.D. by the writer Aelian who described a “Macedonian way of catching a fish”. It really is thrilling to know that the activity you’re engaged in is not some trendy new fad that is here today gone tomorrow, but in fact has a long glorious tradition.

There are many reasons for people to get started in fly fishing. Being amongst nature being at the top of the list. Just the simple act of going fishing is rewarding enough for many people. To get pleasure out of this sport they don’t even have to see or catch a fish, but when they do it is just fantastic.

Fly fishing attracts thoughtful, patient and intelligent people. It is not difficult to learn it but there are many skills required to be successful at it and these come from many hours of practice. Before even getting to the water, the fly fisherman needs to know so many things such as picking correct flies to use, choosing the materials if one is tying their own flies and knowing about the different fish species and their unique characteristics.

If you are just getting started in fly fishing, it might seem at first very difficult to know what gear to buy, but you will quickly discover that this is not true and the shopping for fly fishing gear is immense fun. The rod is at the top of your fly fishing gear, it is what you use to cast the line that has the fake fly attached to it. The rod also gives you the ability to control and adjust the fly line without too much disturbance to the fly. It is also the fly rod that gives you the ability to fight and land the fish.

There is a huge range of fly fishing rods available for sale on the market and they are made from a variety of materials. Graphite is the most popular because it is light, strong and affordable. Other materials used in the construction of fly rods include fiberglass and bamboo.

The most important things to think about when choosing a fly rod is length and weight. Fly Fishing rods are available in a variety of lengths from 6 feet to 15 feet and more. The type of water and fish you are fishing will determine what rod to use. Longer rods will allow you to cast a line further than a short rod even if it is of the same weight. Therefore, long fly rods are suitable for bigger fish, so the bigger the fish you’re going after the bigger the rod you should buy.

Shorter fly rods are not without their strengths. They are fantastic for fishing in tight areas with brushy banks and posses a faster action due to their stiffness.

The size of the fish you will be fishing for also determines the weight. Every fly rod is made to cast a particular fly line ranging from 1-weight for very light fishing to double digit numbers for saltwater fishing. So the line weight plays an important role in your choice of fly rod.

Another important aspect of choosing a fly rod is its ‘action’. This points to the rod’s flexibility. You can get slow, medium or fast action. Slow-action is the most flexible because the entire body is flexible. Slow action fly rods allow you to cast the line slowly and accurately. Fast-action rods are flexible only in the tip and medium-action rods are in between. If you are a beginner, go for medium-action fly rods as they are easy to cast and suitable for most fishing conditions.

Knowing about the different features of a fly fishing rod is important in order for you to make the correct choice when buying one. The difference between a successful fly fishing trip and an unsuccessful can be down to the type of rod you employ so to give yourself the best chance of succeeding make sure to buy the best fly rod you can afford and if you take care of, it will last you for many years.
