Here are a couple of sites for fishing knots:

(just from a google of "fishing knots")...

wrt fast or slow rods, it is my opinion that a person should use whatever works best. Fast rods are generally better in windy conditions, but I truly like the feel of a slower rod most of the time. So, I'm obviously no Lefty Kreh or anything, but I do know what helps me cast better. I still need lots and lots of practice, so you can take this for what it's worth.

Is there really any good way to tell the stiffness of a rod besides going to a store and feeling it? I've noticed very few sites online tell you what the action of the rod is and it seems the less expensive I go the faster the action is and just doesn't seem to be what I'm looking for.
I think your best bet is to try it out. Just like any other thing in advertising, one company's size 10 shoe is like another's 9 1/2 ;) You'll get to know a lot more than just the fast/slow response of the rod, such as how well it is balanced, etc. When I was looking at fly rods a while back (3 yrs ago?), I'm pretty sure that the faster rods were more expensive, so that's interesting if things have flip flopped.
