Selecting a Fly Rod
As in selecting a fly-rod one is rather more apt to consider primarily its casting qualities than its suitability to playing and landing trout, so is one prone when speaking of fly-fishing to consider rather the act of casting the flies than the ways of fishing them. As a matter of practical angling, however, one of the chief functions of the fly-rod is the playing and landing of trout; and casting the fly, apart from tournament work, is a mere mechanical preliminary to fishing the flies. Fly-fishing begins when the flies are on the water. Ability to cast well cannot be over-rated, but fishing the flies is even more important.
