Freshwater Line Weights vs. Saltwater Line Weights

by Doc Trout

 

     I was thinking about different fly line weights for different purposes today and trying to fathom the saltwater fly fisherman's point of view when it occurred to me that both freshwater and saltwater fly fishermen have similar preferences for the range of line weights they use for a particular purpose. For instance, most freshwater fly fishermen choose either a 3 wt., a 4wt., or a 5 wt. line depending on the size of the fly they are casting and the degree of delicacy they need in their presentation. In addition, most saltwater fly fishermen choose either a 7 wt., an 8 wt., or an 9 wt. line for the same purpose with the freshwater fly fisherman's 2 wt. being the equivalent of the saltwater fly fisherman's 6 wt. and with the freshwater fly fisherman's 6 wt. being equivalent to the saltwater fly fisherman's 10wt. So, once I looked at it in this way, I suddenly realized exactly why so many saltwater 6 wt. fly rods have such soft tips when compared to the same brand and series of freshwater 6wt. fly rods
