Great Fly Fishing Combo

I ordered the 5/6wt and it is the perfect do it all size. I’ve already caught a few bluegill on the line that was included. I love that I was able to open the box and tie on a fly and get to the river. The rod handles very nicely and the reel feels very durable. I also really liked the included rod tube. This rod replaced the old fly rod that my Grandad passed down to me 20 years ago. I was very happy to find that this rod outperformed my old rod.

Great rod/reel combo!

Really loved this rod/reel combo. The shipping was speedy and the rod tube is extremely functional. The rod is very durable and the reel is super smooth. It came pre-spooled which is nice since I don’t have a lot of experience. This rod and reel have been very forgiving for this new fly fisherman.

Best fly setup

It has a very sturdy case and the zippers are quality!
The pole is made of high quality material and it shows! It is nice and lightweight and glides through the air like it should.
The real is nice and smooth for reeling in the big one. You will never go wrong with this setup. The price point in my opinion is to low. The quality this setup brings should be priced above $200. At this price they are giving them away.

Really exceeded my expectations

This is a really nice fly rod kit. I was quite surprised when I opened up the bag. I have another beginner set and this one is way nicer.

The rod itself seems like great quality. The pieces fit together perfectly and are easy to connect and disconnect. The flex, the lightweight feel yet solid, the rod just feels like a quality rod.
The reel is good but obviously not high end and nicer than my other set.

I really like the fact that it comes pre-spooled and ready to go.

The case is nice as well. It’s able to carry the reel connected to rod handle so no need to remove the reel every time to put away.

This set looks of quality and looks great.

Super High Quality, Great Price

The company that produces this rod/reel combo is from my home state of Pennsylvania. And I'm very impressed with the product they've produced for such a reasonable price.
The reel comes completely pre-spooled. All you need to do is add the flies and you're ready to go fishing.
The quality of both the rod and the reel rivals that of combos that cost 5 times as much, or more.
The carrying case is solidly made. The exterior is a tough canvas with a zipper that works beautifully. The interior of the case has a solid PVC core to keep the 4-piece rod protected.
The 4-part rod easily and sturdily interconnects.
I would highly recommend this rod/reel combo over the cheaper options on Amazon. The quality of this combo is lightyears ahead of the other combos without being cost prohibitive.

Perfect combo!

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this combo for the price. The rod tube has individual sleeves for each piece of the rod. It came completely rigged up and all I needed were flies to get started. You couldn’t ask for a better fly rod/reel combo. I also bought their fly fishing vest and the quality was just as good. They also have some fly assortments that I’ll definitely be adding to my Christmas list.

great value and economical set up

I don’t usually write reviews, but so far i’m a big fan of this brand. last year I went on a trip with my dad and brother to fish the Missouri in Montana. We used the guides gear and then borrowed some from the outfitter when we went out on our own. I loved the feel of those rods, but I could not believe the $1k price tag on some of them! i’m glad I found this brand because the quality is there but not the sticker shock! this set feels really great in the hand and the travel holder is well designed. I can throw some tippet and a small fly box in the side pocket and keep this thing in the truck when traveling.

The most used fly in my boat!

The Miracle Hopper, both orange and black are my favourite flies for rainbow and cutthroat trout fishing! I use them all summer and into the fall. I have used them on lakes, the famous Bow River, in Alberta…the Flathead River, in Montana and the Elk River, in British Columbia. Im usually the only woman on our favourite lake and I get asked frequently what it is that I’m using to catch all the fish. It’s the Miracle Hopper! The picture I’m sending along with this review is a fellow that came over to me on the lake and asked what I had on…he told me he hadn’t even had a bite in over 2 hours and saw I was catching. I showed him the black miracle hopper…..when he looked at it he made a face and said….””this is what you are catching with? This fellow was a purist fisherman…I had to talk him into putting this fly on his line. I showed him how to twitch it to get the fish’s attention and how close to the weeds to cast. I waited and watched a few yards away! His second cast he nailed this trout! He is now a believer!

Very nice fishing net to go easy on your catch and release fish

I like to fly fish. In the past I would buy a real expensive wooden fishing net then leave it on the shore and the cycle would begin again. Having a rubber net is important as most of my fishing is catch and release so I don't want to hurt the fish with a scratchy net. The price of this net was almost too good to be true given my past experience purchasing nets like these so I had to get it to see if it would work for my needs. I was pleasantly surprised to see that this is a very sturdy framed and nice looking net. The netting itself is just as I had before and will be good for the fish. Unless you are looking for a fishing net with exotic wood that you can show off at the lodge, this one for the money is a perfect substitute.


it cleans very light the net with a good depth and seems to be very resistant , wood with a perfect finish

High quality Low price

I really wanted a quality fly reel that wouldn’t break the bank. This reel checked all the boxes! Very smooth retrieve. I loved the drag on it. This was my first step up from a beginner’s level fly reel, and you can definitely tell the difference. Fantastic fly reel!

Smooth Sailing

I like the smooth release of the line. The reel has such a smooth release that I had to make sure I still had the rod with me. The tensioner is easily adjusted and makes reeling in the big one easier. You won’t go wrong with this purchase.

Great fly reel!

Perfect 3 wt fly reel! Definitely getting a good reel for the price. The body seems to be a Aluminum and steel machined and does pop with the red on black. The drag system seems good and tight and loosens or holds with ease since it has the grip on the knob. The reels inside is squared off rather than inclined up like some other designs but I see no issue with that. It's a good little reel, seems will hold line just fine and looks good to boot. The knob is plastic but seems to be a tougher plastic, never had issues with these cracking or otherwise. Just remember to take care of your reel and oil it up every once in awhile and this will last a lifetime.

Super nice design and quality for the price

This fly reel hits a sweet spot where excellent design and quality are achieved at a fair price. It is easy to find boutique fly reels that cost 3x or more than this one, but they are not going to look or perform significantly better. This reel has a high quality anodized aluminum alloy construction, and impressive fit and finish. The drag is super smooth and adjustable. The 5/6 size reel was able to accommodate 100 yards of 20 lb. Dacron backing and a 6 weight forward fly line. The reel can be easily converted from left to right hand operation by removing one spring clip and flipping the sprag clutch located in the removable spool's hub. For the price, I can't say enough good things about this reel. I give it a strong buy recommendation.

I hope you find this review helpful.

Nicest fly reel I've ever owned!

Alrighty, so I'm a budget fly fisherman. We fly fishermen can be a snooty bunch so a lot of fly fishing gear is WAY out of my league. I ordered this reel (5/6) and figured I was going to take a step up from my current entry level Diawa. When it arrived I realized I had taken a quantum leap upward! Beautiful black finished aluminum with classy, functional, red anodized drag and spool release knobs. Now I actually have a legit, super-smooth drag that ranges infinitely to handle anything from bluegill in a pond up to small tuna/dorado in Baja. The drag itself is very smooth without any sudden release or or jerky movement under extended pull. Locally, I plan to fish steelhead, trout, smallmouth, and largemouth with this reel. What I'm really excited about is taking it down to Baja on my annual trip so I can put it to the test with peanut dorado and the ubiquitous black skipjack in the Sea of Cortez. To that end you can see in the photo that I already loaded it with a generous backing of 80# braid topped with a WF7F fly line. Yeah, I know I should have probably gone with the 7/8 for Baja but I'm not "scairt"! Thank you Perfect Hatch for a fantastic product at a price an "Average Joe" can afford. I'd give it six stars if I could!!!!

Great Quality Fly Reel

I purchased the 3/4wt and it is perfect for what I need it for. I’m newer to fly fishing, but I still wanted a quality fly reel to start with. I really appreciate the attention to detail even down to the packaging. I’m ready to break it in on my upcoming trout fishing trip!

Crazy Good Quality

i’ve recently got back into fly fishing and I live the innovation of all the brands but dang has it gotten expensive! i’m glad I found this brand. i heard from a buddy that there stuff was the best bang for you buck and after getting my order in I definitely agree. has the feel and movement of a much more expensive reel. now I just need to find time to get into the water!

Best vest for the price

I really liked the fit of this vest. Love the pocket placement and the additional pocket on the back of the vest. I counted 11 total pockets all with good quality zippers. I wasn’t really expecting this vest to be as durable as it is for what I paid. The vest does have some flexibility on who it could fit as well. I think if you are between sizes that you could size up and cinch the buckle in the front. Overall great vest and you can’t find a vest this good of quality for this price range.

Great Fly Vest!

Plenty of storage and loved the overbuilt zippers! Can’t go wrong picking up one of these vests. I use the rope at the collar to hang it up when I’m not fishing. Bunch of pockets is always a plus!

Perfect Lay out and Fit

I got the S/M and it fits perfectly. Not too loose and not too snug. For reference, I weigh around 160lbs and I’m 5’10”. This vest has plenty of storage to fit all of my fly boxes and fly gear. The zippers are really solid and quality. This was important to me since my last vest had really cheap zippers and nothing is worse than a snagged zipper. I’ll leave my vest set up that way all I have to do is grab my vest and rod and hit the road. I’ll definitely be gifting some of these vests to my fly fishing family members this holiday season!

Great bait for Bass and Panfish. Best popper so far on local pond.

Chernobyl Ant Bass Slayer

Popular with the local pond bass and other pan fish, enticing, durable, light, easy to cast. A winner for the freshwater fly box.
