Ideal for backpacking anglers, the 5 wt, 9 foot, 7-piece rod we have got for you is a true gem!
With a performance medium-fast action blank, this rod offers ultimate flexibility to cater to all your fly fishing needs.
The IM8 graphite used in the rod's construction makes it incredibly lightweight, yet highly responsive while casting. This rod is specifically designed to tackle the species that you'll be targeting, giving you an unmatched performance from the first cast. You'll love the smoothness of it in your hand and how easy it feels to cast.
Lightweight Aluminum Fly Reel
This innovative reel has been expertly crafted to perfectly balance your rod, making every cast feel like a breeze.
Its water-resistant aluminum construction makes it more durable than ever before. With an adjustable disc drag system in place, reeling in large fish will be a cinch. And, with an 85mm diameter, you'll be able to retrieve your line at lightning-fast speeds.
What's more, this combo is so lightweight and well-balanced that you can even carry it with the tip of your finger!
Waterproof Fly Box & 9 Flies
That waterproof fly box is a must-have for any angler. Not only does it keep your flies organized and tidy, but it also ensures they float on the water's surface. The Classic Flies Pattern is a great place to start, with three each of the Chernobyl Ant, Tungsten Bead, and Tan Caddis.
All Accessories You Need
Our durable nylon carrying case to keep your fly rod safe during travel and storage. A handy nipper that doubles as a nail knot tool is essential for any angler. And last but not least, a zinger to attach your nipper to your vest. Keep your tools easily accessible and always at hand. With these accessories, you'll be set for a successful day on the water!
Most fly fishers will say that you need a high dollar rod and reel but this little 5 weight has been a workhorse for me and fly fishing with Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing for veterans it’s always performed just fine for me.
I have only flyfished once when I was 13... let's say a decade or 2 has passed. Bought this as we we going to Colorado for 5 days of hiking and want to fish for the mountain trout with a fly rod. This is a great basic kit. You will want to add some additional Flys, forceps and fly floating (along with a basic net) before you head out. All in all, I am very happy with this purchase and plan on using it a bit now that I am home as it is a lot of fun!
Just received the flyrod, put it together and tested the action.
Excellent service and advice
Unfortunately I have not had a chance to use my new Fly Combo, I will say the reel is so balanced that a small amount of force and the reel spun like an eternity. Once my health changes so I can get to the waters edge, you can bet the farm that my new Wild Water 7 piece combo will be in hand!
