Great For Beginners, Great for a Backup!
A friend of mine began to give me lessons on fly fishing on a White River Classic Combo. After I got the feel for it, I was hooked. I traveled to my nearest BPS later that week and bought this rod and the matching Dogwood Canyon reel. After returning home, I began to fish our favorite stream and caught 21 Horneyhead chubs and 2 trout that first day! My spinning combo has aways been an attention getter, but this rod is every bit of the same quality I paid for as my favorite spinning combo. The action is great, and its very comfortable... even after hours of fishing. If you're on the fence of entering the new world of fly fishing, buy this! You won't regret it! I surely don't, even after a year later and after fishing with friends combos that cost 3 times as much, I honestly feel that this rod and reel combo is the same quality as the big boys! Thanks BPS!

8 years ago I stopped fishing for some reasons. Before I quite fishing, I used several expensive fly rods ranging from orvis to sage. These days I re-started fishing and needed new outfits to spare them (plus: they are almost wore out). As I didn't like to waste money anymore and searched for a reasonable takle. Finally I found this model. Actually I didn't expect these rods for the price, so I tried to purchase only #6 & #8 models. After I got them, I went to the sea to try out how they work.
Believe it or not, I was so amazed when I easily cast full line thanks to the slow action.
These models are so appropriately designed for the re-entering fisher like me. Also this model can be a perfect gateway for beginners. If you pay only approx. 60$, you can easily learn what fly casting is. This is amazing! I highly recommend Dogwood Canyon to everyone.
Don't ask me how much fishes I caught with these rods, good tackle and good fishing are absolutely different.
ps; BPS must store more qty. These models are so frequently out of stock when I want to buy further.

Great All Around Combo
I purchased this outfit about 4 years ago as an upgrade from my old combo. I can tell you I live in Branson and I fish with this rod below the Tablerock Dam. Somedays I'll catch 20 trout on this outfit from nymphing to drifting a dry fly down the current. This rod covers it all. This is a great quality, durable fly reel and it comes at a great price. The line and backing are also great quality and easy to cast. Even for beginners.

Size is not all that important when it comes to fly fishing. It is all about timing and technique. With a little practice you could handle any rod from 7' to 15'. Depending on where you intend to do most of your fishing an 8' or 8'6" 5 to 7 weight rod should fit about any venue on freshwater (and some brackish water as well).
