Your size has virtually nothing to do with selection of an appropriate rod/line weight or length. Rod/line wt. selection should be based on the size of flies to be used, along with size of fish pursued. Rod length is a subjective decision but usually a 9 ft. rod will be best for a variety of conditions.

Size is not all that important when it comes to fly fishing. It is all about timing and technique. With a little practice you could handle any rod from 7' to 15'. Depending on where you intend to do most of your fishing an 8' or 8'6" 5 to 7 weight rod should fit about any venue on freshwater (and some brackish water as well).

How many eyes does the 9' rod have?

New to fly fishing wondering why the 9' rod has so many choices of line weight? Is it the size of the eyes?

Line weight determines the size of load the rod will carry. A 4wt. rod that is 9 ft. long is suited for small flies, whereas a 8 wt. rod in the same length would be adequate for tossing large flies for bass, salmon/steelhead, etc.

The 9’ rods will have 10 or 11 guides, including tip. Fly fishing is a bit different than conventional, in that the line weight is the primary element, rather than the length.

You first choose the line weight of your outfit based upon what type of fishing you’ll be doing.

If you’ll be fishing for panfish or trout, look at line weights from 4-6.

If you are going straight to bass, a 7 or 8 weight is better because it will deliver bigger flies and control bigger fish around cover.

An 8-1/2 to 9 foot length is average for most fishing. If you’re going to fish smaller streams with lots of overhanging trees, that’s when you might want to look at a shorter length.
