||An overhead cast in which the fly and line do not touch the water but move forward and backward mid-air.
||Accidentally hooking a fish in areas other than the mouth.
||Only found in bodies of water with flowing current, feeding lanes are usually found where fast and slow water converge to create a conveyor belt of food traveling by the fish.
||A connection between rod sections.
||An extension (usually cork), of the fly rod immediately behind the reel seat -- normally found on fly rods seven weight or larger.
||Refers to the action of a fly rod -- where the rod bends when casting and fighting a fish.
||Material applied to flies and leaders in order to cause them to float on the surface of the water. Typically sold in liquid or paste form, although dry shake crystals have recently been found on the market.
||A fly line designed to float on the surface of the water. Typically used for dry fly fishing and shallow water nymphing.
||A relatively new material on the market that appears more stealth-like in the water and has a greater abrasion resistance.
||A weighted line which is cast to deliver a fly to the desired location. Can be found in many densities, weights, colors, and tapers.
|Fly Line Weight Classification
||A measurement in grains for the first 30 feet of a fly line. The weight will determine what size of fly rod can be used to cast the line.
||A fly reel is used to store line, provide smooth braking, and to counterbalance the weight of the fly rod during the casting process. Can be found in many different weights and with different drag mechanisms.
||The type of fishing rod used to cast the fly line. Historically built with bamboo canes and fiberglass, but now almost exclusively with carbon graphite.
||The portion of a fly cast that is directing fly line in front of the angler.
|Full Wells LogicGripﾪ
||A rod grip with a larger, tapered shape toward the tip of the rod, allowing the angler to leverage their thumb comfortably, making for a more powerful cast.
||The standard graphite composite material used on all Premium Series fly rods. Actions range from medium to medium-fast.
||A light weight, high-performance graphite composite material used on all Premium Plus Series fly rods. Actions range from medium-fast to fast.
||The lightest, high-performance graphite composite material used on all premier Fly Logic fly rods like the Optimum and Optimum Plus Series. Actions vary from fast to ultra-fast.
