How to Put a Fly-Fishing Rod and Reel Together?
Most fly-fishing rods come in more than one piece, which allows for easier transport and storage. Putting them together properly can keep parts from getting bent or broken and will ensure that they work as intended.
- Put the rod together first and then attach the reel, if they came separately.
- Locate and identify all the sections of your rod. They break down into two, three or four pieces. The top end is the tip section. The heavier section with the grip is the butt section. The ferrule is the connection between the pieces
- Place the tip end into the butt end, or for multiple pieces start at the tip end. You can line up the guides - the metal eyelets the line goes through - later, because you want to twist the tip end to tighten it into place. If you start with the sections offset at a 45-degree angle, when you twist it into place you will be lined up. For three-piece rods, put the top two pieces together and then assemble the same as a two-piece rod. For four-piece rods, assemble the top two and bottom two sections and then put them all together
- Be careful not to push or pull the pieces of your rod together by the guides - they will come free of the rod very easily, and don't snap them back into place
- Make sure the connection between each section is snug, but not so tight that you won't be able to pull it apart later when you want to take the rod apart
- Decide which direction the reel handle should face: this is determined by whether you are right- or left-handed. Where the reel attaches to the rod is called the reel seat, and the bar across the reel is the foot
- Slide the foot into the slot on the rod, and screw the locking ring over the end so that it is snug but not overly tight
How to Buy a Fishing Rod:
- Test the grip of the rod. Make sure the handle fits snugly in your palm.
- Choose the length of rod. 4½- to 6-foot rods are suited for lighter bait and fish such as perch and crappie. Shorter rods also work well in brushy areas. Rods 6½ feet and longer are good for bigger bait, longer casting distance and rougher fish (bass and catfish).
- Test for flexibility. Hold the rod in your hand as if you are casting, flip the end, and watch the tip for movement.
How to Choose Fishing Gear:
- Choosing a bass rod depends on the technique. For worming and jigging we will need a 6'6" to 7' length in a medium/heavy to heavy action. Spinnerbaits will require a 6'9" medium/heavy action. Crankbaits and topwaters will need a 6' to 7' medium action.
- When choosing a reel I like one that has at least five ball bearings. I like a reel with a 6:1 gear ratio for worm and jig fishing. The faster gear ratio helps to get the bass up and out of the cover quickly. A 5:1 gear ratio reel works well for spinnerbaiting. I like a 5:1 ratio for cranking. The slower ratio helps reduce fatigue after a long day on the water.
- The fishing line may be the single most important piece of the puzzle. The line is what connects us with the fish. 15 to 20lb fluorocarbon works really well for worming and jigging. I like 14 to 17lb monofilament line for spinnerbaits. For crankbaits I like 10, 12, 14, or 17lb monofilament depending on the cover and desired depth. The smaller the line diameter the deeper the crankbait will run.
- There are so many different lures to choose from that it will make your head swim. We will keep it simple. Worms, jigs, spinnerbaits, crankbaits, and topwaters should get us off to a good start. I like worms 7.5 to 10 inches in these colors: red shad, tequila sunrise, watermelon seed, and green pumpkin. Black and blue jigs are hard to beat just about anywhere. Quarter to half ounce spinnerbaits in white and chartreuse/white should cover most situations. We will need crankbaits that run 0 to 5', some that run
