Rod Weight/Power

Fishing rods are rated by the amount of weight the rod is able to handle. Fly fishing rods are given a specific number. That number should then be matched with a line with the same rating. For spinning and casting rods the weights are usually broken up into the following:
  • Ultra-light
  • Light
  • Medium-light
  • Medium
  • Medium-heavy
  • Heavy
