Best travel pack!

Again, with proper care, it will last, although upgrading the reel doesn't have to break the bank either, and can be done in the future if necessary.

Poorly fabricated rod.

Let me start off by saying this: most people buying this package have no knowledge of fly fishing. That being said, some of the negative reviews come from people not understanding the equipment, or how to use it properly. I'm a novice fly fisherman myself, but I did considerable research BEFORE buying this package, so I had some idea of what I was getting into beforehand. For the one reviewer who states he needed to buy tippet material: a tapered leader (which is included in this package) is a tippet. For the reviewers stating that the line doesn't float, that is because the only type of fly fishing they are aware of is probably dry fly fishing. The fly line that comes with this package is a sinking fly line. It is INTENDED to sink. If you're expecting to start dry fly fishing with this package, you'll need to buy a few items. In fact, anyone looking to start fly fishing will need to purchase at least 2 more items before using this setup. To use it as-is, you'll need backing and subsurface flies (AKA "wet" flies). To start dry fly fishing, you'll need backing, floating fly line and dry flies. There are other items that will make the package more effective still, but the items I've mentioned above will get you started. Wet flies will imitate larval and emerging state insects, as they do not float. Dry fly fishing, however, is far and away the more popularized type of fly fishing, and as such, the vast majority of beginners will attempt to dry fly fish with this package, and will become quickly discouraged and give up fly fishing altogether, thinking it is "too hard". With a little research and prep, however, this can be a very effective fly fishing outfit.

Things I definitely like about this kit: it is very lightweight.

I bought this along with fly line backing and floating line all crystal river on amazon {as the kit does not come with backing and comes with sinking line}as I prefer dry fly fishing .I bought this to pack on my bike and I was not expecting much for the money,boy I was surprised the first time I used this rod ,I am fairly new to fly fishing but I own a st. croix 8ft 6 inch 5 wt, that I love,and also a Fenwick 7 ft 5 wt,now I am not saying its the same but I will say I am impressed that for less than $50.00 for the rod,backing,and floating line a couple of flies in the box ,I am ready to fish any time ,I think I will get another for the truck just for a back up . The reel is plastic ,but I thought it worked well,it even has a drag ,again I am very impressed with this kit I honestly do not think anyone would be unsatisfied for the price,this is not a complete kit to start fishing ,so do not buy it thinking it is,hope this was helpful.Crystal River Executive Travel Pack - Fly FishingCrystal River Fly Line Level #5 WeightCrystal River Dacron Fly Line Backing, 50 Yards (Orange)

The combo set comes in a compact and padded case. Fly rod is 8 ft length with 8 sections that break down for storage in pockets. For use with 4/5 line weight. Reel is single action with adjustable drag, but expect to use rim control if bringing in a big one. Only quality issue is that one guide on tip section was mounted incorrectly. I am handy so was able to remove the guide and re-wrap - looks good as new. Overall a good deal for travel set - I plan to use on upcoming canoe trip on Buffalo River in Ozarks.

Well the travel case is pretty Cool and the whole Partial combo. I was hoping for a complete ready to setup and fish Combo kit with fly line backing and tippet material. But is a great partial combo kit. The fly box is a nice addition but pointless without some flys. If i were the manufacture of this kit i would include a few flies in the fly box some Fly line backing and some tippet material to tie to the end of the leader. So only three items are not included that would make this a True ready to go fish combo kit.

I'm sure after i have gotten the rest of the materials needed to set it up it will be an excellent start to my fly fishing adventures. :-)

I have purchased two of these travel flyrod kits and intend to purchase several more. The kit lacks three things backing, tippet and flies. The rod casts better than almost any other rod out there. The line doesn't float well but casts very smoothly. The fit and finish is lacking and the reel is no frills, but it definately serves the intended purpose. I have caught hundreds of fish on this combo from Trout and Panfish to Pike and Bonefish. It fits easily into a carryon and can be ready to fish anywhere.

I just returned my second rod in a few weeks..both broke upon first use towards the tip. Poorly fabricated rod. Looking to find something else now.

The 5 weight rod that comes in this package is a great little rod. It can be used as a medium light spinning or fly rod. The reel that comes with it is a glorified line holder. Fine for panfish and smaller bass. It has no drag to speak of. I bought this for the travel rod. I threw away the line, reel, soft case, and tackle box, because I had no use for them. I paired it with some nicer cortland line, and a nicer reel and a hard rod tube.
