Fly Fishing Rods
Catch a fish you can brag about on your next fishing trip when you use a fly fishing rod to bring him in. Fly fishing rods are specifically used for fly fishing, which is a distinct angling method in which artificial fly fishing flies are used to attract fish to bite. These flies are cast with the help of fly reels and fly lines. Fly rods are used to present flies to the target fish, allowing experienced anglers to cast weighted lines using specialized wrist flicks.
Fly Rod Construction and Design
Many fly fishing rods feature either a two-piece or a four-piece design for easy disassembly, transportation and storage. Fly rods often are constructed from graphite, which lends durability, yet is lightweight for simple casting. Guides promote smooth line movement and are made of materials, such as titanium oxide, aluminum oxide, hard chrome and stainless steel. Sometimes, a fly rod includes a cork handle or grip for a comfortable and secure handhold.
