Starter Kit - Bass, Large Trout and Wind
SAVE WHEN YOU BUY A STARTER PACK!
Chasing bigger fish means you a need a bigger rod to help you maximize your casting distance, fish the elements and throw bigger flies. The 9' 6wt set up provides that extra backbone needed to chuck larger streamers to Brown Town or in to the lake for hungry bass. This is the ideal rod for fishing with larger nymph rigs, streamers, and all around casting with wind in your face. Plus, save more money when you buy it all in a package like this!
The base of this pack lays in our 9' 6wt 406 rod. A medium fast action rod with a strong backbone to allow you to chuck heavier and bigger flies. Our matte finish and titanium finished snake guides really set this rod apart from anything you will find at this price point. Our direct to consumer sales model gives you the quality you would normally be paying 2x+ for.
As for reels we provide the following options with this package:
- Patriot reel - a fully CNC'd, fully sealed drag, highly adjustable drag
- Midnight reel - a fully CNC'd, highly adjustable drag that is not fully sealed
The main difference between these two reels is the concealment of the drag system. The easiest way to decipher which is best for you is to how you will care for your gear. If you are one that tends to set the reel end down on the bank while you are wading to change out your flies or lay the boat down in back of the boat, the fully sealed will be your best option. This concealment essentially prevents any debris or water from getting in to the drag system thus reducing the amount of cleaning/lubricating that is recommended compared to a non fully sealed drag. If price is the primary driver and you take care of your gear, then the fully sealed would not be necessary for your needs.
Be sure to select the correct handing for your reel with this basic walkthrough found here.
All rod packages come pre-packed with our industry standard 20lb blue backing along with our weight-forward blue/gray fly line. This weight forward aspect complements the action of our rod greatly allowing you to chuck your line with ease. If you are looking to get your flies down deeper and want to change over to a sink tip or full sink line, give us a call and we can certainly swap out the floating line. On the hand, consider adding a spare spool packed with the line of your choice so that you can simply switch spools to change up your angle of attack on the fish you are chasing.
Included with this package are two 5 packs of 9' tapered leaders in 2x and 3x sizes. you are going to want these higher strength leaders for the fish you will be throwing big bugs to. If you anticipate fishing spookier fish based on the water conditions at all, you likely will want to add some 4x or 5x leaders to your cart!
The final piece to the puzzle is the tippet. We included a pack of 0x-3x fluorocarbon tippet to this package as it will cover the vast majority of your needs with the 6wt rod.
Add one of our highly sold aluminum FlyWorks Nets to your starter pack to round out the full set up. Pick from our blue, green, or gunmetal option all with a magnetic net release included. This is the perfect set up for your wading needs. If a more traditional wooden net is more fitting to your style that is additionally available with the Burled Wood option.
With this start package, we included our waterproof double-sided fly box. You are going to need it, and the two sides leave ample room for your impending fly collection.
