The difference between fly fishing rods and normal fishing rods are that fly fishing rods are usually more thin and flexible. Fly fishing rods usually have lightweight materials tied on to their ends that show the fisherman exactly where his hook is situated in the water. Fly fishing rods were originally constructed from yew or bamboo, but now they are mostly made of fibreglass and carbon graphite. Fly fishing rods differ in length and weight to accommodate what type of fish the fisherman is looking to catch. Fly fishing rods are very versatile fishing tools and can be useful for catching small river fish, or large saltwater fish. No matter where you are fishing or what type of game you are fishing, there are fly fishing rods for you. Be sure to ask for tips from other successful fly fishermen and you will soon be on your way to catching all types of fish.
