Need a Fly Rod Under 7 Feet Long? Check Out This List!



The standard 9-foot fly rod offers the perfect blend of casting ability and line control.


While this fly rod length is the most popular because of its versatility, there are times when a much shorter rod makes more sense. From brush-choked streams where open space is limited to simply increasing the fun of farm pond bluegill, downsized fly rods definitely have their place.


After scouring various manufacturer websites in search of fly rods that are currently offered under 7 feet in length, here is what I came up with...
