I Teach fly tying and fly casting I find the rod I just got has the wrong weight fly line on it to light to load the rod . This is my fifth rod from Wild water
I bought this because the reviews are great and I’m just getting into fly fishing. Been fishing on spinning rods my whole life. Anyways, the reel already comes with backing, fly line and a tapered leader. Just buy a tippet. I’m taking a fly fishing class and the instructor who is an experienced fly fisher commented on this combo multiple times. In fact every time he handles it if he’s showing me a casting technique. Very nice set and great for a fly fisher at any level. Works great for most fish unless you’re going for the trophy sized trout.
Very nice unit, however, the reels are left-hand retrieve. I plan on ordering more only if we can order them with right-hand retrieve. Switching the bearing does not do the job as the line must be spooled for right-hand retrieve at the onset, otherwise the brake is in the reverse and the line will free wheel and make a mess.
I filmed a video with it held up fantastic and the flies are great!!!
