This is a great rod for the beginner fly fisher I bought a 4 weight rod for small streams and rivers . The rod has good action and is well made and affordable .

I was looking for an affordable fly rod that would perform similarly to the pflueger that i had broken recently. I was pleasantly surprised to find that this rod actually outperformed my old one in distance and action. Definitely worth buying

Excellent rod for small streams
I purchased the 7'6" 5wt for a smaller local stream about 2 years ago at my local Bass Pro. The rod has performed great and has become not only my small stream go-to rod, but I'm also now using it to help my son learn fly fishing. I'm also considering a 9' 7wt for small steelhead (also have a 10' 8wt White River Classic for the winter run).

Excellent Rod for Price
Purchased both 5 wt 9ft & 8wt 9ft Dogwood canyon rods. Both rods are worth the price. I caught a huge 30 inch steelhead on the 8 wt and it worked fine. Both the rods are excellent for beginners and definately worth the price. The 5 wt had a moderate action which is a good all around rod for the beginner. Both the 5 wt & 8 wt had plenty of action to play fish without busting off. I highly recommend the rods i used.

Size is not all that important when it comes to fly fishing. It is all about timing and technique. With a little practice you could handle any rod from 7' to 15'. Depending on where you intend to do most of your fishing an 8' or 8'6" 5 to 7 weight rod should fit about any venue on freshwater (and some brackish water as well).
