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?

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