awsome combo i got this combo for christmas as a first time fly fisherman after fishing in my front yard(prac. casting) it was easy. just went bass fishing for the first time yesterday and caught multipule 5lb. bass without a problem. the rod, reel and fly line work awsome only thing i would reccomend is the fly tying tool this helps tie on new leader ect. once again awsome product by the white river fly shops.

Nice Combo This is a good little combo if you want a quality combo without breaking the bank. Only thing I didn't like was the line they put on it. It's rough and causes drag when reeling and casting. Invest in a better line and problem solved. September 2, 2011
Love this Fly Rod I bought this Fly Rod and Reel combo about a month ago based on the recommendation of the guy's in your fly shop. I was a little worried that I bought something that would not last very long but I think I will have this rod and reel for quite a long time. I have been very happy with this rod and reel. I'm new to fly fishing and have been practicing casting for a few weeks in the front yard. Today I caught my first trout with the pole in a small local stream and the pole performed perfectly. I would highly recommend this for the fly fisherman just getting started or on a budget - works perfectly! August 12, 2011
worst product ever made!! this is the worst rod ive ever used. ive used $30 rods better than this you might as well get a long stick and tie line to it with no hook and it just as good and that is an understatement. the best thing about this rod is the case that comes with it and thats it. the case is worth more than the rod. BASS PRO IM DISAPPOINTED IN YOU YOUR PRODUCTS SHOULD BE BETTER QUALITY July 25, 2011

A: 
The 5 or 6 weight will be great for Bass and most other freshwater species. It is typically suggested to use at least a 10 weight rod when chasing most saltwater species. Tarpon grow quite large and a fly rod that works well for Bass would not be effective in fighting them or in casting the appropriate sized lures.
 
Q:

Carrying Case

Details: 
The first picture shows the rod & reel but the second picture shows a hard travel case with the rod in 4 pieces with the reel.

The description doesn't address this issue.

Does this combo come with the case on ALL offered sizes?

Good question. Same rod, but you have heavier line so it'll cast further

Staff Answer
A: 
Fly rods are not rated by action. The heavier the line the larger the lure that can be used, and the larger fish that can be caught.
 
Q: 
2 answers

how much backing?

Details: 
I've never setup a reel before and was surprised to have received this combo unassembled.
How much backing should I apply to the reel before I tie on the fly line? i've searched forums and the best answer has been to 'wing it'. That's not good enough for me.
Should I use the entire spool of backing that came in the combo?

Staff Answer
A: 
Most fly fishers fill the spool of the reel with as much backing as possible to allow them to retrieve faster and to reduce line memory. Thereby the line is less likely to tangle. Read the reel capacity chart to determine the amount of backing needed for the reel.

A: 
I went ahead and spooled the entire amount of the backing provided, tied it to and then spooled the fly line - it was the appropriate amount of both.
This might depend upon the weight of the line you order, but I could be incorrect. I ordered mine with 5 weight
