What do you think about this product?



Hi, does this rod come with the standard reel? I saw below that it’s just the rod on someone’s question but looking on other sites, this rod plus the standard reel it comes with is also $170.

Hey Elaine! Thanks for your question. This listing is only for the rod. We do sell the outfit with the rod, reel, backing, and line listed under ORVB0CW.


Is this a rod and reel combo? Or is it just the rod?

Hey Chuck, Great question. This is only the rod. Thanks! Jean


Is the fly line included with this setup or would I need to purchase separately?
