Fly Fishing Combos  -  Consider Quality And Price

There are many fly fishing combos on the market, at varying price points, and at varying levels of quality. These kits are great for back country fishing, as they allow you to take a collapsible fishing rod and reel kit with you that is lightweight and portable. Lets look at some of the fly fishing combos that are available on the market today.

The lowest tier, including all kits under $100, consists of Scientific Anglers and Cortland kits, as well as many no-name kits from Wal-mart or other outdoor related stores. You have to remember that you get what you pay for in this market, so if your kit costs $30, don't expect to be able to cast like a pro. The rods are heavy and stiff, with low quality materials being used in their construction.

The next tier up, ranging from $100 to $175, consists of specialty fly fishing combos from Cabelas and Bass Pro Shops, as well as other outfitters. These combos employ higher quality materials, and will translate to lighter rods and reels, and more flex in the rod. This will allow you to learn to cast on a better fly rod, which makes the process easier and more enjoyable.

Redington makes up a tier all by itself. These combos range from $175-$300, and rival the top tier brands in quality and construction. For the price, there really is nothing better than buying a kit in this category. The rods will be lightweight and have fantastic feel, and they are highly recommended by the author.

Above this range, combos are phased out, as individual items become more and more expensive. Remember that you get what you pay for in this market, so do your homework, try out a kit or two, and make a decision based on your needs and budget. It is important to not spend a lot of money on a beginner kit, because you might not like fly fishing after all, but a better quality kit will allow you to make a better decision in the long run.

Of all the tiers in the fly fishing combos market, the $100-$300 tiers are by far the best way to go, and that goes for beginners and experts alike. I just can't say enough good things about Redington fly rods. And the specialty combos from Cabelas and Bass Pro Shops are also fine rods. Remember that you will need to be able to cast with a decent fly rod to get a feel for the quality of the combo, so try casting with the rod in the store before you buy it. Good luck!
