Beaver Meadow Small Stream Custom Fly Rods

Beaver Meadow Small Stream Custom Fly Rods:

Short fly rods are something we specialize in. Fly Fishing in the Adirondacks is a lot of rock hoping and exploration. However you don't have to be from the Adirondacks to like small stream fly fishing. Small streams happen everywhere, from Vermont to the Midwest to the west coast and I have even talked to people wanting short fly rods for fishing for schoolie striped bass.

But if you want to make a real short fly rod for fishing small streams you have to have a fly rod that is diversified and can handle a lot of different casts. The rod has to be able to roll cast. It has to set the hook quickly. It has to be able to flip a fly, especially a weighted fly or a bushy fly in the wind, and most importantly, it has to be a lot of fun when catching a wild trout or small fish or any kind.

Can you just chop a long fly rod to turn it into a short fly rod? The simple answer is no. Consider the reason we make a small stream short fly rod. The rivers and stream we have in Central New York are essentially the delta before the Adirondacks filters to the Mohawk River. Our environment has forced us to design a fly rod for these types of applications and fly fishing styles. If you simply chop a few inches off the tip of a fly rod, you are making the rod much stiffer and usually not very good for roll casting. Yes, but what if you just chop a bunch of inches off the butt section? Well, this does work, but it makes for a cob job fly rod and eventually when you do need the butt section of the rod to land a bigger fish, you won't have it anymore. You also will have a fly rod that does not have equal sections.
