“One of the best aspects of lake fishing is the accessibility.”
- When lake fishing at reservoirs or fisheries you should be looking at a fly rod about 9’6″ or 10′ in length. You need to be prepared for a big rainbow! Also when lake fishing you may need to cast further than if on a river or brook.
- When starting out, knowing which rod to go for can be quite daunting. The best advice is to try out a few rods and see which one “feels right” for you. Many vendors have areas where you can have a test before you buy. Even if you do know what sort of rod you are looking for, it is usually still wise to try out a few prospective rods to see which one is for you!
