How to Buy Rod & Reel Packages

Due to the sheer volume of available options, your first rod and reel purchase can feel a little overwhelming. Luckily, several manufacturers now offer packages complete with a rod and a reel pre-spooled with backing, line, and leader. Just add some flies and you're ready to go fishing. Save some time and take a look at one of these packages if you’re just getting started in fly fishing.

Weight
The rod and reel weight you want depends on the type of fish you’re after. For general trout angling, a 5- or 6-weight will be versatile enough to handle most situations. Consider a lower weight if you're fishing small creeks and a higher weight if you’re aim is bass or another type of big fish.
