Understanding Fly Rod Actions
Fast vs. Slow for Specific Fishing Situations 

Fly rod actions are often misunderstood and understated when rods are sold through retail outlets. Obviously, a few great fly shops exist and they will take the time to walk an angler through the actions and options but many will simply suggest a medium-fast rod as a safe bet and drive the purchase. 

In many cases, the medium-fast action rod is the best bet. But it’s worth understanding other actions and options, in case there is another perfect fit for your fly fishing purposes.
