New & second hand fly rods

To go fly fishing you can use just 1 type of rod, namely a fly rod or fly fishing rod. All other fishing rods can not be used. Next to that, a fly rod can only be used with a fly reel with a fly line. The length of a fly rod starts at about 1.80 M (6 ft) for short distances and smaller fish and can go up to 3.90 M (13 ft) for long distances like at sea und for the strongest fish on the sea. Most common lengths used within Europe on inland waters are 2.40 till 3.0 M.

Important is to have a fly rod with a fly reel which have about the same aftma.

Which aftma for which type of fishing?
The aftma of a rod is does not stand for the type of fish to fish for, it says something about the casting weight and casting power. A heavy fly or streamer demands a higher aftma then usual. And vice versa when you want to cast a small fly or nymph, it is remmonended to use a lower aftma and still get a relatively large fish. But to give you an idea which aftma is needed for a certain type of fish, here is an overview.

#1-3: small white fish, trout and flag salmon
#4-6: large white fish, perch, trout and flag salmon
#7-8: carp, pike, salmon, large trout species, and small saltwater fish
#9-11: carp, large salmon, large pike amd larger saltwater fish like sea bass
#12-15: tuna, tarpon and other very large saltwater fish

Do want to start fly fishing or need an allround fly rod for different fish and waters? Then we always advice our customers to use a aftma #5. 

Are you going to fish in a river or from the shore? Than we advise you to use waders to keep yourself dry and warm while standing in the water for a long time.
