Temple Fork Outfitters’ NXT beginner rod and reel outfits are an affordable way to shorten the fly fishing learning curve. The NXT outfit comes with a high-performance IM6 graphite fly rod, up locking reel seat and a composite cork handle. A cast aluminum disc drag reel comes rigged up with fly line, backing, leader and a tapered tippet all packed in a handy rod and reel carrying case. Just in case there are any ''mishaps'', TFO has been kind enough to include a lifetime no-fault warranty.
Rated 5 out of 5 by FlyDon Love these rods!
I picked up this little baby as my first fly rod. The great staff at Bass Pro showed me the basics and I was off. I now have 3 of them and fish all over Illinois with them. These are great starter kits and you can not beat their lifetime no-fault warranty.

Rated 4 out of 5 great begginers outfit
This is a great rod to get started with this outfit got me hooked on fly fishing. I bought to fish in the everglades and have been catching Ladyfish and trout all day great for the younger angler

I would the ditch fly line that came with the outfit. Didn't like how the line loaded on the rod and the first 3 feet of the fly line would sink but if you're chucking and ducking you can probably get away with this line. However, for any other type of fishing I would switch to something like a Scientific Angler mastery series.
I'm an avid bass fisherman who is considering trying to use a fly fishing rig. I know basically nothing about rods and reels so I'm wondering if the reels are left/right specific or like spinning reels are they reversable?
We do not carry the replacement spool, however, you may be able to purchase the replacement spool through either our Outdoor World Rod and Reel repair department (phone: 417-873-5274; M-F 8-4:30) or by contacting Temple Fork Outfitters directly at 800.638.9052.
Mine has held up for over a year with proper care, but the size diversity in fish I would recomend more than one outfit. I fished the 8/9 wt for reds and sea trout on the gulf for 12+months going 5-8 times a month wadding chest deep. Still works here in WY as it did new, but only used in the high wind or when throwing larger flies.
If you're on a budget and still want a TFO rod, I'd go with the other outfit that is a combo TFO rod and Hobbs Creek large arbor reel. The reels that come with the NXT outfits just aren't built for heavy and extended use. Especially if the species you chase frequently take you to your backing.
