Default Re: learning rod

Shorter and lighter rods are generally recommended for ladies, due to less wrist strength being needed to cast them. Something like a 8'6" 5wt, or maybe a 8' 4wt would be a good choice. Joni would really be the best one to provide a response on this one, being both a lady and a guide of ladies, and hopefully she will chime in pretty quick.---------------------------------------------------------------------By the way, be warned that she will probably get to where she is throwing pretty casts faster than you learn to, given proper instruction. Ladies tend to accept that timing and finesse are sufficient to cast well, while we hairy legged boys tend to think more application of power will be all that is needed to make the cast work better.
