So, you’ve decided to embracethe fly fishing lifestyle, eager to satisfy your desire to be at one withnature, just you and the rod, surrounded by the untamed beauty of nature. But what rod should you choose?
There are so many to choose from; it can be overwhelming for a novice. All of those weight numbers and technical specifications become nothing more than a tiresome blur for the uninitiated mind.
We recommend a moderate-fast action or moderate action rod for beginners. Fast action rods are stiff and designed for casting into the wind and battling stronger fish while slow action rods are more flexy and therefore accurate at close range and great for delicately fishing dry flies and nymphs. Buying something in between to start off is a good way to get the hang of both styles of casting and gives you a versatile fly rod capable of several fishing styles.
We here at Maxcatch understand just how difficult it can be for a beginner preparing to embark on their first fly fishing adventure, which is why we have compiled a collection of high-quality rods that are specially designed for first-time anglers.
