Fly Rod combo's are how most people get into flyfishing. The convenience of a matched rod to the reel with a line to suit, takes the guess work out of the sometimes confusing range or rods/ reels/ lines on offer. The Cortland guide series offers the perfect combo for Saltwater and Freshwater natives. The Rod is an 5 weight which will handle a massive range of bread and butter species both fresh and saltwater. Species such as Trout, Bream, Carp, Flathead, Tilapia, Redfin, Salmon. A greet combo for people getting into Flyfishing including Kids.  All these species without upgrading the rod, the reel or the backing for many years to come. 

The action of the rod is fast, just like the high end rods that fetch $1500, this really lends itself to wind resistant heavy flies and turning fish. Featuring Snake Guides, alignment dots, a high grade cork grip ( including fighting butt)  with a double locking ring aluminium reel seat The reel is a composite reel with a generous centre disk drag stack. The reel can be swapped from left to right hand easily with just a screwdriver in less than 5 minutes with no prior skill.
