Here are a couple Frequently Asked Questions to help you through your outfit selection.

 Left Hand Retrieve or Right Hand Retrieve: 

For the beginner fly fisher, we recommend that you choose the opposite hand of your casting hand. For example, if you cast right handed we recommend you retrieve the reel with your left hand. Every reel can be switched to either a left hand or right hand retrieve. We will ship every reel professionally rigged and ready to fish with appropriate backing and tapered leader. Just tie on a fly!

What size rod and weight do I choose: 

A very important question. If you will be fishing primarily trout, smallmouth, panfish or smaller species in the 0-5lb range, we would suggest to you to outfit yourself with either 4wt-6wt. A 6wt Fly Rod is probably the most versatile fly rod weight for almost any fishing application. If you are primarily fishing larger fish in the 5-15lb range, A 8wt fly rod will do the best job for you. This could include not only saltwater fish, but larger freshwater species including Largemouth Bass, Carp, Salmon and Steelhead. Please let us know what type of species you are targeting and we will make sure that you are outfitted correctly. Email us info@reelflyrod.com or call us at the Fly Shop at 937-434-8472. 

What type of leader and tippet do I need:

As a generalization, the leader and the tippet depend on the weight of the fish you will be targeting and the type of fly you will be using. Most Leaders and tippets display the pound breakage point on the package. We suggest to outfit yourself with a leader and tippet that will have enough breaking strength for the largest fish you may encounter. Please let us know what species you are fly fishing and we will make sure you be delivered the correct leaders for that fishing application.
