SOFTER ROD

Trout Fisherman (UK) - - Advice -

Which­ever fish­ing method you adopt, a softer, more for­giv­ing rod is con­sid­ered best. The ob­vi­ous rea­son is that finer tip­pet lengths are pro­tected now, es­pe­cially when short line tech­niques are em­ployed. By the same to­ken, a rod which eas­ily yields helps mas­sively dur­ing those short casts as now a short length of fly line of­ten fails to load the rod cor­rectly.
