Wild Water Fly Fishing DELUXE 5/6 Fly Fishing Starter Package

Very Good Deal
For the price, this is a very good combo. Along with the extra line and flies, it is a no brainer for any beginner fly fisherman.

I just recieved my new fly kit and it came well packed and everything was there. I have yet to use it but seems well made. Excited to try fly fishing!

Caught fish first time out!

I had only used a fly rod once before buying this set. I fell in love with it and wanted a beginner set that I could practice with. This set is awesome. I have caught a fish with all three types of flies that were in the set. The rod and reel are solid and easy to cast. I am impressed. I have already ordered some additional flies from wild water. I got the 5wt. 9ft. set.

Great starter setup

I recently moved close to a river in Colorado where a lot of fly fisherman fish, and I wanted to give it a try without breaking the bank. I came across this starter package from Wild Water and based on the reviews, I thought I'd give it a try. I'm really happy with the purchase as it comes with everything you need to go fishing. My first day out I caught a cutthroat and a rainbow! I'm addicted now and had to hit the local shop to get their recommendations on flies, and I can tell you that the flies that come with this starter kit would cost you close to $50 alone. I highly recommend this package for anyone getting started in fly fishing.

“Wild”ly exceeded expectations (see what I did there?)

I can’t tell you how many hours I spent researching fly rods and equipment needed to get started fly fishing. As a life-long spinner fisherman, I was nervous and hesitant about choosing the right gear. After reading a number of blog posts about best beginner rods, I saw a consistent entry in the top 5 recommendations - Wild Water. Not only did it seem like you would get a serviceable rod, reel and case, but also a number of other quality accessories. I crossed my fingers and ordered the deluxe 5/6 weight set (with flies, fly box, leader, tippet, forceps, retractors, nippers, etc.). The value pushed me in the direction of Wild Water (it was just over $100 through Wild Water versus more than $300 when pricing everything through other vendors), but the quality will keep me recommending them. It was far better than I expected for a “starter set” (a misnomer, really, as I don’t think that label does this set justice), and likely could compete with combos in the $150 - $200 range, and that’s not including the accessories. I took it out for the first time the other day - deliberately with no practice - and managed to attach a fly, do some basic casting and catch a couple fish in the span of 3 hours. It’s that beginner friendly. The nippers and forceps came in handy, as I changed flies halfway through my session and that’s when the success came and the forceps became necessary :) seriously, if you are hesitating and thinking this is some junk or low-quality set, I can assure you it is not. I look forward to many hours out on the lakes and streams and am already planning a 3/4 weight purchase in the near future for my beloved panfish. Tight lines!

Great starter package

It has been years since I last fly fished. I purchased this to get into it again without dropping a bundle. The pole and reel seem well made and I have been casting fairly well. All of the accessories are great for getting started. I will most likely be making more purchases from wildwater. One note. I wish there were alignment marks on the rod sections. It would make assembly just a little quicker.
