Fly Rod Selections

Depending On Your Fly Fishing Trip

Typically I recommend a 4-6 weight Fly Rod for wade trips on smaller waters such as the Paluxy River.  However, on the Brazos River or one of the many area Lakes, I prefer and recommend a 6-8 weight Fly Rod.  Big flies allow an opportunity to catch some of the bigger fish which requires a heavier fly line to throw the big and nasty flies with.  Also worth mentioning, big fish are easier to control and land on a 6-8 weight fly rod.  

Most of the time a floating, weight forward and shorter taper fly lines are what I use and recommend.  There are times when an intermediate sink, or sink tip and full sinking lines are in order.  Especially on the Brazos River or one of the many area Lakes.
