How to Choose a Fly Rod Maker
It is highly recommended you visit your local fly shop or a friend to sample different fly rods. Every individual has different biomechanics, rhythm, style and fishing conditions which means that people prefer different rods. The most important things about each fly rod are the style, material, pieces, speed, length, weight, drip, butt and ultimately price. Finding the right combination of each of these elements will allow you to buy the perfect fly rod for you.
For example, people who are always backpacking would likely prefer a pack rod which is typically nine feet in length, 5 in weight but likely in 4 or more pieces so it is small and easy to pack. Some Tenkara rods even telescope making them very small and compact to carry though having limited casting distance. For folk who are fishing for Steelhead on big rivers they might want a much larger Spey rod which requires two hands to cast.
