Fly Fishing for Women

Posted by Richard on 3/20/2014 to Tips
 
Guess what ladies and gentlemen, fly fishing isn’t only for gents; ladies also enjoy the sport.  For women who want to begin fly fishing but don’t know where to begin, the first step is choosing the right fly rod, and many women are unsure how to select the one that is perfect for them.

Besides what fish you want to catch, there are three basic rod features that are important to consider:  the rod's length, its weight and its flex.
The 9 foot rod is considered to be the most versatile length for the widest variety of fly fishing situation. You may consider buying two fly rods, one for the small streams and one for your other fishing.

Another factor is the weight of the fly.  The weight of a fly rod is determined by the diameter of the fly line that the rod is designed to cast.  The type of fish you are trying to catch determines the weight of a fly rod is necessary; a 4-6 weight rod catches trout, bass, bluegill, crappie, etc., but would likely break if you used it for larger fish like steelhead or salmon.

The third important characteristic of a fly rod is its action or flex.  Some rods bend or flex only at the tip of the rod. These are often referred to as fast-action or tip-flex rods.  A rod that bends about one-fourth of the way down from the tip is generally referred to as a medium-fast action rod.  Medium-action or mid-flex rods bend about a third of the way down, and are the easiest to cast for many anglers and help them achieve better accuracy.

Determining which rod fly rod and fly weight is easy when you shop at The Trout Spot. You will find everything you need to get started on your fly fishing experience, and the helpful sales staff can answer any questions you have.
