Great small stream rod! I got the 7' 6" 5 weight combo this last december, and i have had a good # of trout on it. This rod has not the best rod action but is great for a beginner to novice. I do not recomend this rod for big rivers or anywhere you have to cast a long distance, the action just does not allow you to cast very far. The overhand cast is about the best cast you can do on it. The roll cast is alright. But like I said I only use this rod for small streams or where ever you don't have to cast very far. Good fishin' to ya', hope you catch a big one! Note: I paid $84.99 for this rod, so $54.99 is a great value. March 1, 2011
Great Beginner's Rod I just started fly fishing last season and this rod is the sole reason that I have grown to love the sport. The rod is very forgiving, which is extremely important for a beginning caster. Also, this rod breaks down into 2 sections, which makes it easy to pack in a car for a trip, with no loss of performance. It looks very sleek, too, another bonus. Overall, any beginning fly fisher would be wise to buy this rod because it is inexpensive, beautiful and above all performs great. January 20, 2011
great rod i bought the 4 weight for small mouth in a river by my house and it is fantastic. It casts like a dream and handles fish great. November 16, 2010
Great rod I bought this rod in weight 7 to fish for sunfish and bass primarily. I wanted something I could use on my boat without costing a small fortune. I was pleasantly surprised. The quality is far better than other rods I looked at at twice the cost. The action is very smooth and casts like a dream. I would definitely purchase more Dogwood Canyon fly rods. September 3, 2010

New to fly fishing wondering why the 9' rod has so many choices of line weight? Is it the size of the eyes?

A: 
Line weight determines the size of load the rod will carry. A 4wt. rod that is 9 ft. long is suited for small flies, whereas a 8 wt. rod in the same length would be adequate for tossing large flies for bass, salmon/steelhead, etc.

A: 
The 9’ rods will have 10 or 11 guides, including tip. Fly fishing is a bit different than conventional, in that the line weight is the primary element, rather than the length.

You first choose the line weight of your outfit based upon what type of fishing you’ll be doing.

If you’ll be fishing for panfish or trout, look at line weights from 4-6.

If you are going straight to bass, a 7 or 8 weight is better because it will deliver bigger flies and control bigger fish around cover.

An 8-1/2 to 9 foot length is average for most fishing. If you’re going to fish smaller streams with lots of overhanging trees, that’s when you might want to look at a shorter length.

A: 
Your size has virtually nothing to do with selection of an appropriate rod/line weight or length. Rod/line wt. selection should be based on the size of flies to be used, along with size of fish pursued. Rod length is a subjective decision but usually a 9 ft. rod will be best for a variety of conditions.

A: 
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).
