- Q & A
Caught my first trout on this!!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Got this for a killer deal and figured I couldn't lose. And I didn't. I'm a totally new fly fisherman and am still very low on the steep learning curve. A guide told me to splurge on nice boots and waders and not the rod and reel. While you CAN spend a fortune on that stuff, this rod and reel combo have been working just fine for me. The reel is pretty smooth, rod is light and goes together easy. Comes with storage tube also.
I did have an issue where I dropped the rod on a black sand beach in Yellowstone and some grit got into the reel. I opened it up and cleared it out and boom, good as new.
The only downside seems to be the reel doesn't pop apart easy like the metal ones, so you can't just switch spools on it. But if you're new to fly fishing or want a backup rod / reel, this will more than suffice.
Is this just the rod or the complete outfit with reel, line, etc.?
