Testing a Fly Rodís Stiffness

Remember when testing the rod for pliancy ó we will talk later about testing the rod ó that a rod which has a tendency toward being whippy will in time develop that characteristic very strongly. The rod which inclines to stiffness, not actual inelasticity, but a good strong suggestion of backbone, is the one you want. It will in a short time with a moderate use, come down to the desired pliancy, and it will stay there. The use of a heavy line will improve the casting of a stiff rod quite measurably. If you find yourself with a rod on your hands that has this objection, use a heavy line and, when you can, cast a long line. The long heavy line tends to produce action in the rod, and in due time, if the rod is not incurable, it may work down to a decent degree of pliancy.

On the other hand a whippy rod can be considerably improved either by additional windings of silk, or by removing the windings from the entire rod and replacing them at closer intervals. It should also be noted that a stiff rod, apart from the objection that with it good casting is impossible, is also undesirable in that with such a rod it is very difficult to avoid handling the fish too roughly. From the middle to the end of the open season low and clear water is the rule, a condition which the angler meets with small flies and light leaders. With a stiff rod and light terminal tackle quick, sharp striking is more than apt to result in tearing the small hook away from the trout, or, in case the fish is a large one, snapping off the fly.
