Great for Beginners -

Bought the rod for my pops for Christmas and it has become a great learning rod. Just like anything else you should buy an inexpensive rod like this first to learn what you do and don't like before you go out and drop a boat load on a finer quality combination.

Just got the 5wt 8'6" encounter, , I've been learning to cast and the feel of the rod is very comfortable in my hand and a very nice smooth cast, , soon I'll take it to the north umpqua river and see it in action, ,,,,, updates to come, ,,,,,

Perfection and well design is difficult to find at times! The rod n case was excellent, reel so smooth and ready to use!!
Ok first rig! -
By: wufwuf from Norfolk
Rod ok but would have been better if there had been alignment dots. The set lost points because of the reel which has been a real disappointment. Drag is getting stuck even when it is completely off. Reel is making a clicking noise as if something is broken in there. No reel lube helps.
Great package to get in the water -
By: Ithacatrout from Ithaca, NY
New to fly fishing and always forced to borrow gear from friends. I finally scraped some cash and purchased this package. I couldn't be happier for a simple, inexpensive rig to give me the freedom to be in the water. The rod casts nicely and is fun to land even the smaller fish. I was surprised by a plastic reel but don't mind at all now that it's had some action! When I eventually make an upgrade this will be an excellent rod and reel for my son to get started.

Attempting to get my girlfriend into fly fishing I bought her this set up. I didnt want to spend a ton of money on a rod incase it did not work but i also did not want to buy a rod that wouldnt preform and set her up for failure. The Encounter rod that i got for her was perfect. Great pricce great quality. everything and more than i expected.
