If your ur looking for a good beginner fly rod a TFO 7 weight rod is a good place to start. If you want advice on rod size, line type and flies you are best buying a rod and gear from the Northern Fly Fisherman in Martensville. His store is based out of his home and I’ve bought a rod and number of other items from him in the last few years. He will take care of any warranty issues or broken rods for you.
Whatever you do don’t buy Cabela’s gear. Their warranty is now only 1 year and they don’t sell extra spools with their reels which is a huge pain if you want to actually get into fly fishing.
I do a fair amount of fly fishing and actually use sinking line and nymphs, leeches or buggers 99% of the time. That being said fishing dry flies (surface flies) with floating line can be a ton of fun.
If you want to learn about fly fishing look up the Nearest fly fishing club and head to a meeting. There are clubs in REGINA, Saskatoon and Prince Albert. You’ll likely meet a bunch of older gents who can’t wait to get you started fly fishing. I’m a member of the Kilpatrick Fly Fishers in Saskatoon and have learned a lot in the monthly meetings.
