Key Features:

  • Ring Reel Seat – This will securely hold the reel to the rod.
  • Rod Tube and Sock – The included sock and rod tube will protect the rod when not in use.

Expert Q&A
Quick, accurate answers from Curated experts to the frequently asked questions
Do longer fly rods cast further?
A skilled fly caster should be able to cast just as far with a 9' rod as a 10' rod. There is really one reason to buy a longer rod - extra reach. Depending on your fishing technique (e.g. Euronymphing) this may be desirable.

What length fly rod for small creeks?
Small Creeks are often easier to fish with smaller fly rods. Ultralight fly rods can be as short as 6'6". Typically most small creek rods are 7'6" to 8'6".
