Free time: Fly rod Video Guide

A fly rod differs from classic fishing rods by its low weight. In addition, their action is parabolic so that special casting techniques of fly fishing can be carried out. The fly is much too light and therefore does not serve as a casting weight. Instead, the lure is placed exclusively over the weight of the line. There are different variants of the fly rod. While the one-hand fly rod is primarily suitable for fishing small freshwater fish, the two-hand fly rod can also be used to catch larger saltwater fish. The switch fly rod is a combination of a one-handed and a two-handed rod, which can be used for fishing large and small fish.

The first fly rods came from China and were made of bamboo tubes. Today, however, modern materials such as glass or carbon fiber are primarily used. The advantage of these is that they are extremely robust and break-proof, so that they can easily withstand the demands of the outdoors. The handle is usually made of haptically pleasant materials such as foam rubber or cork, while aluminium, wood or carbon are used in the manufacture of the roll holder. In principle, however, the purchase of a fly rod depends less on the material than on the workmanship and personal preferences. So don’t hesitate to test different materials or get tips from experienced fly fishermen.

The optimal length of the fly rod depends, among other things, on the respective water. A long rod, for example, allows a greater radius of action, but it is not so easy to handle on a heavily overgrown bank. Experts recommend for beginners a one-hand fly rod with a length of 2.7 m, because this is completely sufficient for most German waters. In addition to the length, the AFFTA class (formerly AFTMA class) should also be taken into consideration when purchasing. This tells you which fish can be particularly well fished with a fishing rod. Fly rods of AFFTA classes 3 to 4 are mainly used for fishing small white fish (hazel, roach). Class 5 rods, on the other hand, are considered standard rods for fishing medium grayling and trout as well as hazel, rudd and chub. Class 6 rods are most commonly used because they help catch the popular trout and perch. If you want to fish for pike, carp and rainbow trout, you should use a fly rod of classes 7 to 8. Class 7 rods are standard, especially for fishing on the seashore. Even heavy predatory fish like the zander can be fished with a fly rod. However, a relatively large bait is required, so strong rods of classes 8 or 9 are best suited for this purpose.
