White River Fly Shop® Dogwood Canyon® Fly Outfits
Piece of junk
Well, first of all, the outfit is shown as a right hand retrieve, which is what I wanted, but it is actually a left hand retrieve, so you have to follow the instructions to reverse it. Anyway, the reel worked fine on the first trip, but completely locked up before I could make my first cast on the second trip. Fortunately, I had a back up reel, but then the screw things on the rod cinched up on me and I ended up breaking my second reel trying to unseat it. It was a great day to fish (no wind and the fish were really active), but the day was completely ruined because of this outfit. Bass Pro is off my Christmas card list.

i have alot of flyrods most of them are past the entry level of rods. i replaced my berkley with a dogwood canyon and was surprised at how it loads the line and preforms. it is somewhat faster than my old berkley and you can throw nice tight loops. my wife also has gotten into fly fishing and she really loves hers. i will buy more in the future when in the market.

The reel is great. It is a lot like some of the orvis reels i own. The rod isn't good. First off i had a 5wt 9ft and it was to wippy and hard to cast streamers and it broke when i caught a bigger fish. Do not get any white river fly shop rod because they are ok the first couple of days but not good for any longer. Trust me i have a lot of experiance and these rods are terrible.
