Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by pretty bad the rod is thicker then it should be the reel is loud and he line gets stuck behind the spool all the time and the line breaks easily dont waste your money cause its cheap that what i did cause this was my first fly rod October 13, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Borderline decent Bought this to "replace" a very old rod/reel that I use very infrequently. There are a couple of issues that become apparent quickly: 1. The rod ferrules (where the 3 pieces come together) do not fit very snugg-ly. Even if you really seat them well, you'll wind up casting a piece or two of your rod downstream. You constantly have to re-seat them to prevent this. I've used it probably a dozen times and the windings are cracked already. Perhaps my rod was an anomaly, but I doubt it. The Ferrules already have begun to crack (See photo) 2. Other reviewers are spot on when they complain about the line. It's pretty junky. 3. ALSO the line tends to slip between the spool and reel housing, always at the worst time possible. More of a reel problem than a line problem. It got to be where I'd rather wind my line around a stick than this reel... A lot of products are good for beginners as they just are not meant to last - that is what I expected out of this. This is a product that is not meant to last AND does not perform satisfactory for what I feel a beginner would need. I would not recommend it to a beginner because the 3 aforementioned problems would certainly turn someone off to fly fishing. October 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great purchase. The reel is a bit loud but this is a great kit. I recommend this kit for everyone!!! December 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by First Fly Rod & Reel I got this fly starter kit as a birthday present.The next day I used it.It was excellent. Can fold up to 3 pieces. I LOVE IT November 27, 2013

A: 
I do more panfishing with the fly rod and catch a lot of Bass and don't use dacking. I see it used more in saltwater because the fish run longer and fight harder. as a matter of fact I don't ever use the reel to bring the fish in. I hold the line with my Rod hand and pull in with the free hand

No not at all. It's a good basic fly rod, great for small to medium fish. I've caught 2 inch long blue-gill on this before also 20 inch brown trout.

There should be nothing stopping you. the mounting hardware isn't keyed any one way so its just a matter of turning the reel to the left side and tightening it down

Yes it comes with all the lines; backing, fly, combo leader and tippet no extra tippet. I don't recall if the fly was tied to the backing but the fly and leader definitely aren't attached.

A: 
The fly line is pre-loaded on the reel. You only have to attach the large end of the tippet (leader) to the fly line, and then a fly to the tippet to start fishing. You may have to research "nail knots" on the internet to see how to join the fly line and tippet.

A: 
It's not a particularly amazing reel but in three years I haven't replaced mine. It will land most trout. Easy to clean and the reel quite honestly isn't as important as a good quality fly line.

I wouldn't risk it. The reel is held on by metal collars cinched down by a plastic nut. good for small to medium play fish but 6 lb. bass would be the one that got away

I've been told by experienced fly fishermen that it is an excellent set up for a beginner. The rod has some good flex, the reel is basic, I could have easily paid much more and have gotten too much for my skill level.
