Can you use a spinning rod for trout fishing?
Use a 6’6”-7′ ultralight or medium-action spinning rod with 6-12 pound test monofilament. The ultralight gear would be great for small baits targeting rainbow and brook trout under 20 inches. For trout bigger than 20 inches as well as any type of trolling, go with the medium-action rod for better backbone and power.
Do you need a special rod for fly fishing?
DO I NEED A SPECIAL ROD? Yes. Fly rods are different from the rods used in other types of fishing. And, just like other types of fishing rods, fly rods can vary greatly.
Is spin fishing more effective than fly fishing?
Some anglers prefer fly fishing, while others only know how to catch fish using spin fishing gear. Luckily, they are both very effective, and with a bit of training, you can catch as many fishes as possible.
