Fly Fishing Rods
By Hartono R.B.

fly fishing rodFly fishing rods are lighter, tougher, and stronger. True to our commitment to research and innovation, we've leveraged technology previously reserved for the aerospace and defense programs-our breakthrough in carbon fiber technology gives the t3 a unique look and feel, and laser-like accuracy makes it the highest-caliber rod in the world.

Fly fishing rods are much more delicate and as making them requires substantial skill, they are pretty heavy on the wallet too. Great alternatives for bamboo fishing rods are graphite fly fishing rods and fiberglass fly fishing rods.

Fly fishing rods are manufactured and sold by length, the type of "action" (degree of tip bend), intended use, and line weight. They typically range from 7 to 10 feet in length, but 8 half to 9 feet are by far the most popular. Some specialty rods, like those for two handed spey casting, will fall in the 12 to 15 foot range. They are specialized to cast heavy line which allows an angler the ability to catch fish with light-weight artificial floating lures made to look.

Fly fishing rods are legendary for their magical properties, their propensity for placing flies just above the ripple. Sage may not be sure about the magic aspect, but they do know that every sage fly fishing rod is made by hand and sage make fly rods for anglers of every stripe.

Fly fishing rods are a lot lighter and the line used is a lot heaver than normal and is sometimes even tapered. At the end of the line is an almost weightless 'fly' in the shape of a dragon fly, which acts as the fish lure. The artistic element is created by the angler's efforts to cast his fly so gently, that the water is hardly disturbed by the line.

Fly fishing rods are longer than those used for baiting or luring fish. The average fly fishing rod measures between 6 and 13 feet in length. Categorize the rods you are thinking of purchasing by the line weight you are thinking of running.

Fly fishing rods are generally between 6 feet to 14 feet, however the material that is used in these rods varies. Several years ago these rods were made from some sort of bamboo but they are now made of mostly fiberglass and graphite. There are also experiments and research being done, with other materials like boron, with the intention of having the best materials for the fly fishing rods. Fly fishing rods are amazing pieces of modern engineering. Made of the most advanced composite materials, they can quickly disassemble and be placed into a regular carrying bag for transport.

The best rod manufacturers are on the cutting edge of rod design and construction. Not only do they couple the highest-grade materials with the greatest precision in rod making, but also they have achieved an unprecedented level of artistry in their rods. Fly fishers speak of a "soul" in a rod, a quality present in all great fly rods.

Fly fishing rods are designed to give the angler the edge he needs to catch his prey. A good fly rod (assuming it's well-chosen for the type of angling you're doing) will provide strength, durability and flexibility. But, to prolong its life, you need to keep your rod well-maintained. Take the time to clean the grip, ferrules (if your fly rod has joints) and the rod blank.

Fly fishing rods are made from graphite which make the rods much lighter than it used to be in the past. Of course there are rods that are made by other materials but since we are talking here about selecting rods for beginners, graphite is by far the recommended material for the rod; it is strong and light weight.

Fly fishing rods are still extremely popular, despite the fact that a plethora of fiberglass and graphite rods have appeared over the last half century.
