This is the perfect outfit for newer fly fishers to get started on the right foot with quality equipment.

ORVIS ENCOUNTER FLY REEL
The Orvis Encounter II Fly Reel is attractive, rugged, and most importantly, has a beefy drag system. These reels are constructed to take plenty of abuse and still perform smoothly. Encounter reels feature a large arbor design to retrieve line faster and help keep line memory free.
Easily converted to either left or right-hand retrieve, Encounter fly reels have a positive click drag knob for consistent settings every time. Whether you're looking for your first large arbor, fishing on a budget, or want a spare or two in the bag, the new Encounter II Large Arbor can handle anything a machined reel can, and is a great performance value in entry level reels.

ORVIS WF FLOATING FLY LINE
Orvis WF floating fly lines are built a half-size heavier to provide extra help loading the rod, casting larger flies, and handling the wind. A compact head helps to transfer energy more efficiently, load the rod in close, throw tighter loops, and turn over flies. This is the perfect choice for the newer fly fisher or those anglers that don't mind making casting a little bit easier.

This is exactly what I was looking for when I found out my husband wanted to start Fly Fishing and I had no idea what to buy! Also Ryan in customer services was incredible helpful. The product came quickly and neatly. My husband was very happy with the product and the completeness of the kit.
Great rod to learn on!
Nicholas giuliano (Punta gorda florida) | June 4th, 2022
I’ve been using this rod for a few weeks now and my casts are already much improved, it’s a lot of fun and is in my opinion worth the purchase especially if you don’t have the rest of the gear.
Great Set Up.
Greg (PA) | July 14th, 2021
customer service has been awesome with regards to prompt delivery. kit is great - net is higher quality than i expected. perfect kit for someone starting out or even getting back into it - Orvis is a good company and even this "entry level" rod feels great in my hands.
One stop shopping! Great package of essentials
John (NY) | July 5th, 2021
I bought this for myself last spring and found it was great value for money. Had all the essentials I needed to fish. Liked it so much that I bought the same starter set for my son, and he's been happy with it as well.
Marilyn (TX) | April 27th, 2021
Bought this as a gift to myself to get back into fly fishing!! I have used it on several trip now and very pleased with the 5wt rod and accessories!! Having it rigged and sent ready to hit the water was a huge plus!! The extra items are working great for my needs and I would highly recommend this package!! I am hoping to get an 8wt rod soon!!
Marilyn (Texas) | April 27th, 2021
Best present ever!! Used mainly in streams and rivers from Texas to Colorado!! The beginner package is a great way to get back into the sport with a good all around package!! Hoping to get another rod like this in a different weight soon!!
Very high quality.
Dakota James Osborne (Randolph) | April 14th, 2021
This is probably the best starter you can buy, it comes with everything you need to get you fishing, and everything is very high quality.
Desmond (NorCal) | December 31st, 2020
I put us together on the 11 point in a guided boat last year. I bought my son a rod and reel from my local supplier this year for his birthday. This package put a top quality rod and reel in my hands, and everything else he needed. The price point to value was perfect. We wet a midge for the first time together the day after Christmas. It does not get better than that! THANKYOU.
