    Great combo package.
    Kurt (California) | March 23rd, 2021
    I purchased this 7-weight foundation combo package and this complete package is the real deal. Everything arrived super fast, something like 3 days from purchase. I liked the fact that they matched the fly line with the tippet included the trout flies super awesome is all I can say. I looked around at different sites and everything that is in this kit is literally a ready to go fishing combination at a very reasonable price. It's cheaper than most places with everything combined. Great customer service, great product, will definitely do business again. Thank you.

    Travis (Ohio) | December 27th, 2020
    I purchased this set as to take the guesswork out of finding the “correct” items to get me on the water as it’s been almost 15 years since I’ve fly fished. This is a great kit, with all necessary items, tools and flies for what I was looking for in the local area. Awesome kit and customer service! Can’t wait to get out on the water!

    Great starter package
    Jacob (CA) | December 24th, 2020
    After lots of research decided to go with the Sage Foundation outfit. I was excited to see this package that comes with everything I needed to start fishing. I showed the products to a long time fly fishing friend and he was impressed with the flies and gear it came with. I have already been on the street casting and the rod and reel are smooth and easy to learn on. I am already starting to hit my targets. Excited for local streams to open up and get out fishing with this package!

Reel is already outfitted and it’s ready to hit the water. The selection of flies included is great and I can’t wait to use everything! Will definitely order from this site again.
