White River Fly Shop Fly/Spin Rod and Reel Combo
Good backup, light all around kit.
I bought this rod for fly fishing in Missouri. I only used the fly reel on that trip and it worked great on Rainbows under 19". The reel lacks any noticeable drag which caused a problem when I hooked two larger fish and could not use the drag to wear them down...I lost both. I just got back from fishing in Arkansas and used the rod and reel as a spincast. I actually used a small Daiwa spincast instead of the one that it comes with but the 7'6" rod worked great for small Rainbows with no problems. I have a TFO fly outfit and Pflueger spincasts but I plan on always bringing this set along as a backup.

Great Starter Kit
Gave 3 outfits to my nieces ages 8-11 for a Yellowstone trip this summer. All caught fish on the Madison River fly fishing with the rods which worked very well. It was good to know that they could convert to spinning techniques if needed. The kit comes fully supplied except for leader and lures/flies The fly reel and spinning reels are good quality and the rod has a moderate to moderate fast action.with good build quality as well for the price point...especially when it was on sale!.

I have used this product and found it to be very usefull. Both reels are out standing and the rod has the right action, for all types of fishing .I strongly recomend this product to any one who travels or just as a compact kit handy and easy to fish with .
