What is Trout Fly Rods Action?

The action of a fly rod is defined as the relative resistance to bending along the length of the rod. Fast action rods resist bending sooner than slow action one. The slow fly rods are "whippy" and will not cast as far as fast ones, however for a beginner the slower action and ability to feel the load of the flyline is sometimes beneficial. Fast action trout fly, generate higher line speeds, making them easier to cast into the wind and for longer distances. Between the two extremes, there are moderate action rods. Over time you’ll find out which type suits you best. If you need help then please give us a ring! Catch a big trout on a slow action rod and there is lots of "give", the rod will bend as the fish makes powerful dives. With a fast action rod and an unforgiving line like fluorocarbon which does not stretch like monofilament and big dives result in break-offs.
