      The Evolution of the Modern Fly Fishing Rod

    From Macedonia to Montana, how did we wind up with today's technology?

     

    Of all the thoughts that drift by when you're on the water, the history of the rod in your hand might not top the list. But with every cast, you are celebrating two millennia of fly rod history and innovation. And though the earliest recorded fly rods bore little resemblance to their contemporary kin, they satisfied the same fundamental desire: outwitting Mother Nature amid her most serene landscapes.

    The earliest references to fly fishing rods date back to the book Aelian’s Natural History. Published in 200 AD by Roman angler Aelian, the two thousand year old text illustrates the Macedonian fishing technique in which red wool and homemade hooks were tied to wooden branches. The wood rods of this period were extremely stiff and heavy, little more than glorified tree bows that could weigh  upwards of 20 pounds. These cumbersome casters remained the standard even during the time of Izaak Walton, author of one of fly fishing's defining works, The Complete Angler.

    History of Fly Rods in the 17th and 18th Century in Picture

    In the 17th century, long and hefty branches began to evolve into more modern forms, with craftsmen hollowing fly rods to reduce their weight. Then came one of the most substantial developments in the history of the fly rods: as builders experimented with various types of wood and joined the pieces to create custom rods, the first ferrule systems came to be and made way for countless variations in fly rod tapers.

    Materials varied geographically, but the Greenheart wood variety was a favorite as recently as the Hardy Fly Rods of the 1960s. Nothing, however, compared to the bamboo fly rods which gained great popularity in the 18th century for their lightweight composition and pliability. In 1845, an American violin maker named Samuel Phillipe created what is believed to be the first split cane fly fishing rod, encouraging many American anglers to develop new tapers and modify ferrule systems with this technique. The early split cane rods were 3 and 4 strip designs and after a few years, 6-strip rods were also introduced. According to some sources, Hiram Leonard, the founder of H.L. Leonard Rod Company, created the first 6-strip rods, but others argue that it was Samuel Phillipe’s friend, Charles Murphy, who introduced the concept.

     

    Developments of Fly Rods in the 19th Century

    Fly fishing gained huge popularity in the 19th century. This was also the time during which rod builders made immense progress in splitting cane and creating tapers using beveling machines, leading to the birth of companies such as South Bend, Hardy Brothers, and Montague. Split cane remained the most popular and widely used material for making fly fishing rods until the early part of the 20th century when fiberglass and new resins caught the attention of anglers and the industry. In 1946, a military researcher by the name of Dr. Howald broke his split cane rod and used a fiberglass tube to fix it. As a result, the Shakespeare Company launched the first commercial fiberglass rods and dubbed the rod making process the “Howald Process.” These rods featured a fiberglass “fabric” wrapped in a spiral around a steel mandrel. Strands of additional fiber, aligned with the axis of the mandrel, were placed over the fiberglass material.

     

    The Transition from Fiberglass to Graphite in the Modern-day

    Advancements in the construction of fiberglass fly fishing rods continued and greatly lowered manufacturing costs and the availability of the equipment to enthusiasts. Split cane started losing its practical popularity, but they continued to be manufactured by companies catering to more traditional anglers. The breakthrough that brought them to modern front was graphite fly fishing rods hit the market for the first time in 1973 (Fenwick and Hardy both claim to be the manufacturers of the first graphite rods). Within the next few years, a number of companies started taking part in the development and refinement of graphite fly rods. Graphite brought revolution to the fly fishing industry and deeply impacted the fishing styles that many fishermen now use today. Improvements in rod design and discovery of processes to create stronger, lightweight fly rods have all contributed to a successful and positive evolution of the present-day graphite fly fishing rods. Boron was also considered as a viable material to create rod blanks, but for now, graphite remains as the material of choice and is most likely to be in this status for some time.



    Today's Fly Rods

    We celebrate timeless fly rods with the Leland Sonoma Series, above. But there are some other cutting-edge options that we love as well. To view the latest advancements in graphite fly rod technology make sure to check out the new Loop Cross S1 Fly Rods. Both rods now use the 3M nano titanium resin system. This new resign not only makes fly rods lighter, but also greatly increases their break resistance.

    Leland Sonoma Wing and Barrel Fly Rod:



    Allow your finest passions to collide!

    What
    does a tea cup have to do with fly fishing? Well, if you can place your
    dry fly in it at forty feet, you won't just catch your trout, you'll
    earn it...and an earned trout is really what dry fly trout fishing is
    all about.

    To do this, you'll
    need a thoughtfully-designed fly rod, reel and fly line that compliment
    one another, making the whole far more than the sum of its parts. This
    resulting balanced and efficient fly fishing outfit is Leland Rod Co.'s
    Wing&Barrel. It embodies the simple truth, that a trout earned in a
    beautiful setting is a memory that will last a lifetime.

    Adorned
    with our special Leland grip, the Wing & Barrel fly rod literally
    fits like a glove into your hand, adding intimacy that other fly rods
    often lack. Our intuitive grip provides you with added purchase and
    control of our already well-balanced fly rod. This rod is truly and
    extension of your body. Of course it's finished with all the right
    components, including a highly-figured Cocobolo wood insert, fitted
    tightly to our darkened nickel silver hardware. Our non-glare blank
    finish combined with our darkened guide set provides a stealthy approach
    when casting and fishing.

    Fly
    lines too often are a secondary consideration. Not for us at Leland. We
    searched and tested high and low for the perfect fly line. Our goal was
    to find a fly line that blends casting efficiency and enjoyment with
    fishing function. After much research, casting, testing and frustrating
    results, we decided to embark on our own journey to design the best fly
    line. It took us a while, but we did our job. Our Leland weight forward,
    four-weight floating fly line (affectionately called the "Pliny" after
    our favorite beer) casts like butter and floats like a cork and very
    noticeably compliments the efficient taper of our Leland Rod Co. Wing
    & Barrel fly rod.

    Not
    kidding, when you cast our Pliny line and our special Leland leader (12'
    4x) on the Leland Wing & Barrel fly rod...you'll finally understand
    what true casting efficiency is. Also, if you cast only our Pliny
    line's head (weight-forward section), the result is always a beautiful
    and accurate forty foot cast. Any knowledgeable fly angler will tell you
    forty feet is the magic mark. However, if you do need more distance,
    our line shoots with ease.

    To
    store the perfect fly line, we obviously needed a fly reel. Again, we
    worked hard to design a fly reel that balanced correctly with this fly
    rod, both physically and aesthetically. The Leland Classic Spring Creek
    fly reel is the answer. When combined with Leland's Wing & Barrel
    fly rod and our fly line, the whole is much greater than the sum of
    parts. With an adjustable and proven click and pawl drag system, this
    fly reel nods to the great fly reels of the past, while employing better
    contemporary materials and manufacturing process, ensuring a fly reel
    that will last a lifetime. Your grandfather would approve of this reel's
    quality and he'd certainly approve of the celebratory sound it makes
    when your fish heads downstream.

    Finally,
    you can store your balanced Leland Wing&Barrel fly fishing outfit
    handily in our nylon-covered rod tube. With its integrated, padded reel
    pouch, you can leave your Leland Classic Spring Creek fly reel mounted
    proudly on your favorite trout rod for easy storage and more
    importantly, quick rigging when it's time to hit the water.

    detdesc::What really is a deal? The answer depends on who you are and what makes
    you happy. If you're the type that defines a “deal” only as a reduction
    of retail price...we'll speed things up a bit. Click this link
    and you'll find all sorts of fly fishing items we have on sale. Just
    know they're on sale for a reason. If however, you're the type that
    defines a “deal” as paying a fair price for exactly what you confidently
    want (and nothing more), we have several true deals for you to
    consider.

    Our Leland Sonoma Traveler Fly Fishing Outfit
    is the “deal” for anyone wanting to truly enjoy an experience while fly
    fishing for trout. This outfit (rod, reel and line) is
    perfectly-balanced and efficient. With it, effortless and accurate fly
    casts to forty feet are yours at will. We've worked hard designing the
    right fly rod, fly reel, fly line and even the right leader to make
    every fly cast for trout magical. Whether you're just getting started in
    fly fishing, or if you've been at it for years, this outfit will make
    your time on the water that much better. It's the very same outfit we
    use for every casting class here at our ranch. It's also the staff
    favorite when we head out to fish for trout.

    Fly fishing is for everyone, especially children. Spending precious time stream-side with a youngster is a day well spent. Our Sonoma Emerger Fly Fishing Outfit
    is an honest “deal” for a young boy or girl. It's absolutely the
    correct length and weight for any younger angler and arrives ready to
    cast right out of the box. Just add a fake bug and your kid will happily
    drop the Ipad or smart phone and go fishing with you. This outfit is
    perfect for catching bluegill in a farm pond or for stalking trout in
    smaller streams. Without sounding too bold, nothing comes close to the
    castability and quality we offer in our Sonoma Emerger Fly Fishing Outfit. You'll never second guess this “deal.”

    Hidden within the chaotic noise of today's performance fly lines is a whisper of the truth. That's our humble Leland “Pliny” fly line
    calling to you. It's inviting you to a fly casting world filled with
    intimate, buttery-smooth, efficient loops. Accuracy and subtle
    presentations are its signature. Should you need more distance than the
    world's easiest forty foot cast, our “Pliny” fly line shoots extra line
    like nothing you've ever cast...it's that good. Although we designed it
    specifically to compliment our line up of Leland fly rods,
    its magic will raise the fly casting enjoyment of any rod. As with all
    our Leland equipment, our “Pliny” line comes with our famous, money-back
    guarantee. We believe there's no better “deal” offered in fly lines.

    At
    Leland, we believe the fly fishing is special. Invest your time wisely
    with those that truly matter and make worthwhile memories that last a
    lifetime. We believe the same should be true for fly fishing. If you are
    going to make a purchase, be thoughtful and invest in a solution that
    you'll never regret.

    From all of us at Leland: Josh, Laurel, Keith, Casey, Carrie, Greg and Burke,

    Tight Lines!

When cranked down, the cork disc drag system can slow down a hard charging brown trout, yet in its lighter settings, still has the ability to protect the finest of tippet.



    With plenty of capacity for your fly line and backing, we're confident at Red Truck that you'll never be second guessing your reel purchase from us. Of course this quality reel is fully-machined from solid anodized, bar-stock aluminum, has a cork disc-drag system and large arbor spool. It's that good.

    Finally, a Simple Sink Tip Solution for ALL Two-Handed Spey / Switch Rods

    Forget about MOW tip, Versi-this or Poly-that.

    Designed for a smooth transition from any skagit style head and even the lighter T-7 and T-10 tips work well on scandi heads.  Featuring 2.5' of intermediate material at the back end welded to 7.5' of T-sink which helps smooth out your cast and keeps you in the zone longer.  Looped at both ends for easy tip or fly changes.  Included are four color coded sink rate tips T-7 (white), T-10 (yellow), T-14 (brown) and T-18 (black) as a complete kit that come in a mesh zippered pouch. These work well on lighter switch rods from 5/6wt 10-11' all the way to 8/9wt 12-14' spey rods.

    Airflo's new FLO tips are the only option for those using the newer intermediate skagit heads and complete the transition from head to fly by creating less sag in the line and more of a straight connection to the fish. Those new to two-handed casting love them because at 10' your never have to change your casting style and experienced casters have been asking for a sink tip like this for years!

    detdesc::Leland on Abel Super Series Reels

    Abel didnt invent the large arbor fly reel, but their Super Series certainly has achieved the embodiment of that concept; a perfect balance between hub diameter and spool capacity. No wonder these reels have taken the fly fishing world by storm! Why large arbor? Faster line pick up, less line coil, and better drag continuity than standard arbor reels. The Abel Super Series fly fishing reels feature a super sized cork drag disk that insures incredible smoothness with ultra low start up inertia and the stopping power to beat fish quickly. Both frame and spool are incredibly strong and rigid, yet lightweight due to their beautifully machined oblong porting.

    Abels proprietary hard anodizing finish bestows a lifetime of corrosion protection. A new outgoing clicker lets you know how fast line is coming off your spool. Three sealed waterproof stainless steel ball bearings offer near frictionless rotation. Super Series Reels size 6 and larger now come with a double pawl system for added reliability. And remember, with FlexABELity, you can use the same reel frame on several different weight fly rods. All Abel reels are convertible from right to left hand wind. Standard color is lustrous Black Coral. Limited lifetime warranty, should you ever need it, right down to the laminated, machined, and sealed wooden handle.

    The Super Series has a model for every line weight from 2 to 14, from farm pond to the deep blue ocean. Find out why experts prefer the reels that set more World Records than any other for 2006; Abel, the fly reel youll hand down to your grandchildren.

    Leland on the Galvan Torque Large Arbor Fly Reels

    The Galvan Torque represents the culmination of the very best in modern fly reel design, all at a mid-level price. These reels have a large arbor design, with its proven advantages, and are impeccably machined from solid bar stock.

    The strikingly attractive appearance of the Torque Fly Fishing Reel is a result of the unique cutouts on the frame, spool and drag knob that significantly reduce weight, while maintaining strength and rigidity. The rounded rims on both spool and frame better withstand impact for enhanced durability and the smooth and reliable thermoplastic and stainless steel disc drag never requires lubrication. There are no ball bearings; a trouble free, self lubricating HPV plastic bushing allows the spool near-frictionless rotation. In this case, less is more. Fully anodized to protect from corrosion, the Galvan Torque is available in seven sizes, and is equally at home as a freshwater companion for your favorite trout rod or as a sleek, ultra-light addition to your modern big game saltwater stick.

    Spools
    are attractively and functionally counterbalanced, and remove with a simple push of a button. The large drag knob is precisely adjustable with distinct, détente settings. The Galvan Torque has a light audible click, both in and out, is easily convertible from left to right hand, and is available in a handsome bronze or blacklimited lifetime warranty, of course, backed by outstanding customer service from a small, family run operation. From amongst the glut of fly reel model choices confronting the prospective buyer, the Galvan Torque stands out as a superb machine at a very reasonable price.

    What makes a good fly rod?




    The fly rod is the defining element in any tackle ensemble as it is responsible for propelling the weighted fly line
    and relatively weightless fly out into the river or lake and to the
    targeted fish. It is the angler's primary tool, a synthesis of
    functionality and art. The very first fly fishing rods were crude
    instruments that got the job done, but today's high performance fly rods
    come in many shapes and sizes and are constructed of space age
    materials like fiberglass and graphite that would no doubt have the
    earliest anglers salivating at the advances in the primary tool used in
    fly fishing.



    Modern fly rods are designed, first and foremost, to cast fly lines
    as efficiently as possible. This goal has created a community of
    specialized casting specialists and "fly rod taper" designers who focus
    on the physics of fly casting and materials science and engineering in
    the search for the most effective fly rod ever produced. These advances
    in fly rod design have led to parallel advances in fly line
    design and construction as well as a general improvement in the casting
    ability of anglers of all skill and experience levels. Improved casting
    accuracy and distance, both direct results of modern fly rod
    advancements, have also opened new horizons in the sport, allowing
    anglers to fish new water and harsh conditions that were never
    accessible with older fly rod designs.



    There
    still is a passionate community of more traditional rod builders and
    enthusiasts who maintain the art of creating high performing rods of split cane bamboo.
    These cane rods are most often found in the deftly skilled hands of
    trout anglers on smaller spring creeks, but several of today's best bamboo rod builders
    are also constructing highly effective rods in heavier line weights and
    in lengths and tapers suitable for Spey casting.





    Components of a Fly Rod




    Rod Blank



    The fly rod blank is simply the physical rod itself. Each rod style has a
    unique shape or "taper" throughout its length designed to deliver a
    specific fly line weight or fly line style as efficiently as possible.



    Grip



    Fly
    rod grips are a key component to the fly rod itself. Grips are
    generally made of Portuguese cork and are shaved and sanded on a lathe
    to create an ergonomic handle. A series of classic grip styles are
    available; Half Wells grips are popular in many mid-weight trout rods,
    Full Wells grips give steelheaders and saltwater anglers a bit more
    control when casting heavier rods, Cigar grips are extremely popular on
    the lightest fly rods, Spey grips are long and tapered allowing an
    angler to easily wield a two-handed rod of 13 feet or more in length.



    Guide



    Guides are small coils of light, but durable metal that hold the fly
    line close to the rod, allowing an angler to actually use the fly line
    and fly rod in tandem to successfully complete a fly cast. These coils
    are sometimes referred to as "eyes" and the first guide or guides near
    the butt end or handle of the rod blank are called the "stripping
    guides" and the rest of the guides are called "snake guides." The final
    loop-shaped guide at the tip of the rod blank is simply called the "tip
    top." Fly rod guides have "feet" and are secured to the rod blank with
    tight wraps of thread about the feet. Generally, guides have two feet,
    but single-footed guides are becoming more popular with rod designers as
    weight considerations become more important for a modern rod's
    performance and marketing story. Recoil snake guides -- guides that
    retain their original shape even after being bent -- are also finding
    their way to mainstream fly rod design for their enhanced durability and
    performance.



    Reel seat



    The reel seat is metal component that holds a fly reel
    to the rod. Reel seats can be as simple as two aluminum rings (called
    cork-and-ring reel seat), or can be beautifully machined combinations of
    aluminum and wood or composite material for larger, heavier reels. The
    reel seat is a relatively new addition to fly rod design as anglers used
    to hold the fly reel in their free hand as recent as the mid 1800s.





    Fly Rod Construction




    The best fly rods, whether bamboo,
    fiberglass, or graphite are put together with the utmost care.
    Construction is the ultimate determinant of how efficiently the rod
    transfers the energy of the caster through the rod to fly line and
    eventually to the fly. A poorly constructed rod is not efficient and
    will not directly transmit the energy generated by the caster to the fly
    line, often resulting in a "wobble" at the end of the casting stroke.
    This wobbling transfers to the line resulting in a weaker, less accurate
    cast. The better and tighter the construction of a rod, the more
    efficient it is, and the more accurate and powerful it will be at all
    distances.



    In modern graphite rods, the quality of construction is directly related
    to the type of source graphite used to make it. As a general rule, the
    higher the modulus (a term indicating how much graphite is present in
    the rod), the better the graphite. Quality rod makers are continually
    searching and redefining the right amount and type of graphite to make
    their rods even better. Translation: just the right amount of modulus
    graphite will make a higher performance rod. Rods that use modern
    aerospace grades of graphite will transfer the most energy with the
    greatest degree of ease and also allow for the best accuracy.





    Fly Rod Performance and Optimization




    Fly Rods and Line Weight



    Generally speaking, the weight of a fly line is proportionate to the
    size of the species you're pursuing. If you are fishing for smaller fish
    with smaller flies, a lighter line weight will allow you to present the
    fly more accurately. However, if you are going after big fish, a
    heavier line is important for turning over larger flies in the wind and
    casting greater distances.



    Action and Flex



    Fly
    rods are characterized by where the rod flexes. A "fast action" fly rod
    flexes near the tip, and a "slow action" rod flexes near the butt of
    the rod with "medium action" somewhere in between. Action determines the
    tempo of your casting stroke. It also determines the ability of your
    rod to generate line speed, a term for how quickly the loop travels away
    from the rod tip. As it takes less effort to cast farther and more
    accurately with a fast action rod, beginning casters are often best fit
    with this action.



    Length



    The type of water and fishing determines appropriate fly rod length.
    Smaller streams mean tighter casting situations, and a shorter rod is
    much more manageable. Big Western rivers and salt water require a longer
    rod for increased distance and power. While, anglers fishing for
    steelhead and salmon commonly prefer longer rods for large mends and
    roll casts. Generally speaking, a nine-foot rod is ideal for the vast
    majority of fishing situations. If you are new to the sport, this length
    will perform effectively in a variety of waters and will allow for a
    solid development of your fly cast.
