Choosing Your Fly Rods
Fishing rods can be chosen with regards to a few criteria:
Action Of The Fly Rods
Fly Rod action simply refers to how flexible a fly rod is, and based on this; fly rods can be categorized into fast-action, medium-action, and slow action.
Fast Action Fly Rods
Fast Action fly rods help to make longer casts, are powerful enough to withstand casting on windy days, and the power inherent in them makes casting easier. The #6 9″ Fonna Fast Fly Rod falls into this category.
Medium Action Fly Rods
These are the most versatile fly rods and are especially easier to use and learn with for beginners. Some fly rods can also be adjusted between fast and medium action to give the best of both experiences. If you have the chance to own just one fly rod, Arctic Silver’s #5 9″ Fonna Medium/Fast Fly Rod and #4 8,6″ Medium/Fast Fly Rod are great options.
Slow Action Fly Rods
These are quite flexible but sometimes lack the utility and versatility that the medium/fast fly rods utility and versatility. They are mainly used by anglers who primarily fish for small fish.
Weight Of The Fly Line
Getting a fly line that matches your fly rod and the size of the fly you plan to use is important to fish seamlessly and ensure line control. It is the weight of the fly line that casts the fly, and improper matching of lines and rods could lead to loss of precision and control.
Fly lines are usually numbered from #1(ultralight) to #14(heavy). Arctic Silver’s Fonna Fly Rods range from #4 to #7, giving you a versatile medium range that enables you to fish for different species comfortably, including panfish, trout, small fishes, and all brass fishes. The #4 and #5 are perfect for soft and slow presentations, with the #6 and #7 more suitable for long and fast action casts.
Length Of Fly Rods
The length of a fly rod affects how well it fishes and can range from 6″ to 11″. However, longer rods tend to be easier to use, cast across a long distance, give better line control, and are more flexible to use. Most of Arctic Silver’s Fonna Fly Rods are 9″, which makes them a winning choice for long casts, windy days, and every other fishing condition. Their 8.6″ Fonna fly rod is also ideal for general fishing in a variety of conditions.
Material Of The Fly Rods
Many fly rods are made with different materials that affect the rods’ weight, comfort, and flexibility.
Fonna Fly Rods are made with a carbon fiber mix consisting mainly of 40 Ton carbon with marginally increased thickness of the blank walls. The roll-on angles of the carbon sheets that make up the blanks are also optimized. The stripping guides on the rods are made of titanium and hard chrome-plated snake guides.
