Fly Fishing Rods, Reels & Line : Learn About Fly Fishing Rods


Hi, I’m Jim from Zoar Outdoor on behalf
of expertvillage.com. In this segment we’re going to be talking about fishing gear and
especially fly fishing. One of the first questions to answer is the difference between a fly
rod and other forms of fishing. You’ll know that the outset that I’ve got my glasses
on and my hat. With most forms of fishing what we’re doing is we’re slinging out
the weight of the lure. The weight of the lure itself, when you release the reel it
pulls the line out, so it’s the weight of the lure in most kinds of fishing. With a
fly rod it’s the weight of the line itself that pulls the fly through the air. So you
can see that as I hold the fly line like this, the weight of the fly line is pulling the
line right up through my hands, so it’s the weight of the lure, we’re slinging the
weight of the line.
