If anyone wanted to take a shot at fly fishing but doesn't want to spend a lot. This is a great deal. The reel is not the one described but is the one pictured just a basic standard arbor.
 I purchased this last week for 129. It came with the wrong reel and no case. I contacted them and received the correct weight reel but still no case and a big discount. They made it right on their mistake,and have now lowered the price by half. The rod is pretty basic but a nice beginner rod and also carries the tfo life time replacement warranty.

Sonny? Sonny?
That's is a GREAT deal for someone who might be on the fence about getting into fly fishing.
Guaranteed you will catch just as many fish with that set up as you would with a $2000 set up if you are just getting started.
