kirit, welcome buddy from a hillbilly. Dont worry about the English. Your English is better than my Russian you can bet. We're all speaking the same language here. Fly fishing. Tell us what type of water you'll be working in. Fast, slow, rivers, streams, lakes, narrow, wide? What type of fish are ya going after and how big are they over there. Are the banks of your fishin hole clear or do they have a lot of brush along the water? These all will be a factor before i can give out real advice. Glad to have ya on board.

rapid eddy, I will fish on fresh water. I will fish in the small rivers, ponds. It will be a chub, a trout and a carp (to 2 kg). Reservoirs more often with pure coast.


I would like #5
Length: 9' (4 piece)

kirit, sounds like with your discription of your type of fishing you may have it down correctly. #5 is a good midrange size. You say new to fly fishing? Have you ever held a rod or made any casts? Do you know if you prefer a slow, medium or fast action? If not i recommend finding someone over there and get em to let ya maybe cast a few times. Maybe some short instruction. The reason for my asking is there are some nice rods locally for a beginner and are very reasonable. If you will send me your address via PM i'll check the shipping cost Monday and see about getting one to ya. Dont spend a lot of money and end up with something you dont want. Are there no outlets in Russia for this stuff? Let me know something. We're here to help. Had the wife out last night practicing her first casting session. I may have created a monster. Bought her a unit for her birthday. Now tell me that aint love. She came in looking for Fly fishing shows and saw the Orvis show only to tell me that i was teaching her the way Orvis suggested. She thinks i'm the berries. Dont tell her any different. Give me some answers kirit.

rapid eddy, I never fished on fly fishing. I can not tell anything precisely.
I think that #5 class will be the most reasonable choice.
I have written the address to private messages to you.
Let me know. Thank you.

now, go learn how to cast. Head to youtube, plenty of free information there to help you get a start on casting. My first years of casting were done with videos, as it was long before youtube & I didn't have the $$ to get lessons. Took a good long time to get casting good!

Enjoy fishing...

Where's it coming from? I checked the PO here in the states and the cost to ship to your address was between $45 and $65. Max length 50" and Min 36". Now show us some fish pictures.
