What does the weight of a fly fishing rod mean?

The weight of a fly rod is the size of the fly line the rod is designed to carry. Heavier lines can be cast farther; they can cut through the wind on open saltwater flats and large rivers; and they can help hit larger, heavier flies in the air. Heavier lines put more force into the rod, and therefore require a stronger rod. Lighter lines allow for delicate presentations of smaller flies, so lightweight fly rods are built with precise presentation in mind. Choose the weight of the rod and the weight of the fly line according to the type of water you will mainly be fishing in. You can get between 1 and 2 weights of the ideal rod and line weight for a piece of water. So if you are fishing a big river for big trout and you must use a 6 WT rod and line, for example, you could get away with a 5 or 7 WT.

What is the best weight for an all-purpose fly rod?

The best all-round rod weight for fresh water is a 4, 5 or 6 WT in 8' 6" or 9' length, and for salt water an 8 or 9 WT in 9' length. With these options you can achieve a huge variety of fishing.

How do I choose a fishing rod?

Start by determining the weight of the fishing rod you need, based on the target species. If you are interested in medium or large trout, look for a 4, 5 or 6. For bass, look for a 6 or 7. Rainbow trout and salmon will require a 7, 8 or 9.

Then think about length. Rods in the 8'6" and 9' range are the most versatile and most common. But small stream fishermen like easy to maneuver rods in the 6' to 7' range.

Finally, consider other aspects of your fishing to determine which rod is best for you. Orvis designs and produces fly rods that meet the specific needs of expert anglers, as well as affordable, incredibly well-made fly rods that welcome newcomers to the sport.
