This was the first fly rod that I ever purchased. After fly fishing for the first time on borrowed equipment, I was immediately 'hooked' and wanted to get my own setup. However, the sheer amount of products available for all different prices was overwhelming. Rods, reels, line, backing...where to begin?

Luckily I stumbled across this setup by Wright & McGill. You can literally purchase this kit and be fishing on a river or lake within minutes. The backing and fly line is already on the spool, no having to tie it yourself. There are several useful little tools as well (the line snips are the ones I use the most frequently) and it even comes with a few flies. I would say that the one thing that it's missing is floatant, but that can be purchased at any fly shop.

Even the included DVD is useful, and gives you some important tips to get you started.

I estimate that I've caught at least 400 trout of all species and sizes on this rod over the years, along with a few bass and panfish. A nice 18" rainbow will give you a fun fight, yet it's sensitive enough to detect a strike from an 8" coastal cutthroat as well. Overall it's a nice versatile fly rod.

The setup that it includes is best suited for nymphing, so if you plan on doing some topwater action you will need to purchase a few more things, but overall it's a great value.

I have purchased several other fly rods since this one, but often I still break out my W&M 5wt and slay some trout. If you're a seasoned fly guy you might not be super impressed with this rod, but if you're just getting started in this awesome sport then you won't be disappointed.

I am new to fly fishing and this was a very inexpensive and well thought out product. It comes with items that you generally need when tying your fly's to the leader line or just storing and transporting your fly rod. It comes with floating line so no need to buy any unless you desire something different. It also comes with the knot tying tool for your leader lines so don't spend the $5-6 on one until you get your kit and try the one included. The rod and reel are made of good quality materials and I have not had any quality issues at all.

This starter set has everything necessary to start fly fishing. I got help from a friend who has been instructing fly fishing for 30 years. When he went over the components, knowing what I had paid, he complemented me on making a great decision, The flies included are good quality, made by Umpqua and each pattern a classic trout fly. I am spending many hours exploring the local trout habitat, as well as planning to get in some bass fishing this summer.

Bought this for my daughter's birthday so I could use my rod in peace. She was placing her fly easily and accurately on the first attempt. Action was great and no problems to report after a few uses now. She was pleased and Dad gets to use his rig side by side fishing with his daughter. Good quality for a good price in my opinion. I am not on overly experienced fly fisherman but compared to other rods I have used of similar or greater price or prestige by name I would place this one above them. My plans are to replace my current 4 weight with the same one due to the quality.

This is my first fly fishing outfit, when I ordered it, the kit was supplied from Ed's Fly Shop in Colorado. Ed arranged to have it shipped Fedex so that I could have it in two days. I thought this was amazing customer service. It arrived as he said and the kit was excellent in every aspect. I am a beginner fly fisherman however I fish with people who have been fly fishing for years and they all rated this reel and rod as an excellent value. It truly had everything you needed to be out on the river fishing that day! The quality is very good and I have been having great fun learning with this equipment and the DVD is also entertaining and instructional. On my first outing with this kit I caught a really nice small mouth bass on a streamer! I highly recommend this kit and Ed's Fly Shop to anyone who wants to begin fly fishing and not spend a fortune until they really get hooked!
