9 foot 5 weight Rods and Reels – Your “All Purpose” Set up!

There is no arguing that the most widely used and recommended fly rod for trout fishing is a 9 foot 5 weight.

Since 1985 Leland has been selling a wide array of brands to reflect this.  Our focus has been brands that focus on quality, functionality, and superior customer service.  Fly Fishing should be fun and spending time researching different brands, reading reviews, and watching videos can be exhausting not to mention time consuming.

If you are getting into the sport of fly fishing or are a seasoned angler the choices can be overwhelming.  To make things a bit easier, we have selected three brands of 9 foot 5 weight fly rods along with a corresponding reel to make those of you in the market for a new 5 weight a bit easier.

If you have further questions or would like discuss any of the combos below in further detail we are available Monday – Friday from 9am to 5pm PST at 415.781.3474 or send us an email at info@lelandfly.com.
