The Fly Shop's Fresh H2O Outfit

The Fly Shop’s H2O Rod/Reel/Line Outfits – $295.00 – $445.00
There is simply no better set up to get started in fly fishing than The Fly Shop’s signature lineup of fly rods and reels.  Each rod features forgiving actions combined with responsive high modulus graphite. It’s a marriage of design and materials that compensates for errors and a less than expert casting stroke.  Choose your reel from our M2A or L2A, depending on your price comfort, and we throw in the quality Scientific Anglers fly line to make it complete.  An extra bonus is that every TFS fly rod comes with an extra tip to keep you fishing even in the event of breakage.

  • In September we added 2 models to our Indicator rod series and they have been a hit!
