Rod weight, fly size, AFTM: finally, it all adds up

If, like me, you still tend to rate your rods as ‘broom handle’, ‘wispy’ or something in between, Orvis has come to our rescue with this handy chart that allows you to marry up the numbers regarding line, species and fly size…

“draw a line straight down from the middle of the size range for your species (green bar) to where it intersects the middle of the fly line size ranges (yellow bar). This will not only give you the best all-around fly rod for that species, it will also give you an idea of what other kinds of fish you can chase with the same fly rod”
