I haven't had the rod/reel on the water yet, but the package looks great. The included flies are good quality, the tools are great. The reel looks like it belongs on a more expensive setup. Can't wait to get out and try this package.
This is a great set up for the price. Received a Wild Water gift card from my wife for my birthday. I have been fly fishing for ten years and never heard of this company but looking at Wild Water site and saw the fly fishing packages I decided to add to my collection and bought the 7/8. It is a well made rod with everything you need to get started fly fishing. If you are starting into fly fishing I would highly recommend Wild Water!
My first try at fly casting a learning experience. My casting was week but I got threw it ok. One thing did work out. I managed to catch my first fly casting bass. It wasn’t big but now I am hooked on fly fishing. New addiction
