Intro fly rod -
By: fishingheather from Cardiff, Wales
I purchased this setup because I wanted a heavier weight rod than my 5 weight Clearwater setup that I use for trout fishing. As a graduate student on a budget this rod has been perfect for me fishing for bass and bluegill. I intend on giving it a go in some local salt water here in the UK. While it is not a high end setup, it performs just as well as my Clearwater setup. I am a loyal Orvis fan and was surprised at the quality of this rod and reel combo---also the rod holder and book that was in included was very nice. I would recommend this rod to anyone on a budget or anyone who is getting started in bass fly fishing. If you wish to fish for small trout, I would suggest a lighter weighted rod if you want to fish for small trout in streams. But for bass this package has not let me down. Once again I am impressed with Orvis quality. Notably, I have taken this rod with me everywhere I go- around America and the UK....
