We get asked the same question a lot: "What saltwater fly rod outfit should I get to get started? The fact is you'd probably want an 8 wt and a floating line for more subtle presentation estuaries and flats and a 10 wt with a sinking line for the boat for its increased lifting power; but "if you want to play golf with one club" in coastal New England it would be a 9 weight with an intermediate line.
We've told bunches of customers and every fly fishing tackle company we could find. Every companies 'combo' until now quit at 8wt. Until now. Honestly, we couldn't be more excited to now have a quality combo that every angler along the coast who is curious about saltwater fly fishing would be well served to purchase.
