Temple Fork Outfitters™ NXT Fly Fishing Rod and Reel Outfits
Great price for product
I have been using this set up for over 6 months now and would not trade it for the world. This has been a great trade up from an entry level to a solid mid-level set up. The rod is solidly made and has a good level of flexibility allowing for some less than desirable casts to reach their destination. It holds up well with bigger fish on the line. The reel works very well and the drag holds up during cold and wet weather. The warranty is one you cannot beat so for me, this was a great buy!

The #5/6 combo, great kit for the price
I have recently started fly fishing again after taking a break for nearly 12 years. I started back with a cheap graphite rod and then moved over to a couple of classic fiberglass rods, a Martin in #6 and a Heddon Pal in #7. I really love the way the fiberglass rods respond and how they gently put the line on the water, I had heard these NXT rods had a similar action and I was not disappointed. The quality of all the components is very impressive, the rod is finished wonderfully, the reel impressed me with it's drag system, and the case that they fit in is also top notch. I'm by no means a great caster, but I have come close to shooting the line to the backing when needed. The rod loads well and can punch through the wind with a little effort. So far I've only caught some RioGrande perch, Long ears, blue gills, and a pair of small Guadalupe bass on this rod, but it feels like it is up to the challenge of a big fish if needed. The only complaint I have, and it is a small one, is the fly line seems to get a bit "sticky" to the rod and line guides after about an hour of being in the water. So far putting on line dressing after each use has made this a non issue, but that is the only complaint I could find in this combo.

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.
