A wonderful rod and reel combo!

I was very surprised at the quality of the combo once I started using it.
The carry tube is sturdy but compact. It's small enough to fit under the back seat of Silverado. Is light enough to take on a long hike to find that perfect fishing spot.
The Opener is always in my truck!
The natural cork handle is comfortable in my hand. The 4 piece rod assembled quickly and feels stout.
I would recommend this combo to beginners and veteran fishermen of all ages.
I caught a couple of nice Brown Trout this past weekend (in Benton, PA) on this rod using a Perfect Hatch Dry Fly Nymph.
I'm looking forward to trying more your accessories!

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.
