VERY Good System Bought it for my wife - she loves the feel and the...
I am surprised how small the reel is and how thin the rod is. I wanted a short outfit to fish from my boat, but this is really small. I may return it, going to consult with a family member first.
I'm really happy with this package and the ease of use for a beginner. Two or three times a year my brothers and I fish for native brook and rainbow trout in high altitude creeks in Eastern California. I've always used ultra-light spin tackle but my youngest brother is an avid fly fisherman and it looked like a lot of fun. I decided on the 3w 5'-6" package based on the small trout we catch in these creeks. The creeks are 12" - 36" wide with good habitat for the fish. The casting is 10' - 20' into the narrow water. My brother worked with me on the casting and line handling technique and it took me about 2 - 3 hrs. to start placing the fly where I wanted it to land. I caught 8 fish during the day and one of them was as nice as any I've ever caught in this creek. My next purchase will be a 5w 9' rod for larger fish in more open water. Great purchasing experience. Great customer service when I had questions. Fast shipping. I have recommended Wild Waters to a couple of friends and will definitely order from them again.
love the combo. the included flys, fly box, leaders, and tools were just the icing on the cake. you aren’t going to find a better value for this much equipment at a level of quality that will last anywhere else. major points also for the 5’6” rod - you can’t find one of those anywhere and for the little creeks and steams that i love to fish a big 9’ rod is just not practical or fun. i have purchased their flys in the past, but this is the first time i have purchased their hardware. it’s not as high quality as my orvis gear but it’s also literally <20% of the price of that gear as well for an equally effective tool.
What an awesome rod & reel set. Perfect for my kayaking experience and 1st time out servel fish even on flies provided. This is my second set from wild water love thier products and quick shipping! Thank You!
very good. only issue is how the leader can wrap inside the reel but the instructions did inform on how to quickly get it undone. that is only complaint. and first time out with it to just try it before heading to a brookie stream I went out and caught a fat 15 inch wild brown in some fast deeper water. lots of fun and it handled it
