Rated 5 out of 5 by Nonickname Pflueger fly kit
Arrived on time. Half again cheaper than other stores. Birthday gift for my son, later in month, so still in package. From the looks of contents, package contains more flies than described. Dad used pflueger , since I can remember, I use pflueger, now my son has pflueger, and I reckon my grandson will too his next birthday. I will order from Dick's the next time I buy a fishing gift.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ez$chuck NOT BAD FOR BEGINNER
Overall, not a bad choice for a child who wants to try fly fishing. I was disappointed with the reel, as its mostly plastic. However the pole/line/flys that comes with it are pretty good. If the child gets into it, I will buy him a decent reel-if not I'm not out alot of $.

Works pretty good for a beginner who doesn't know what they are doing and doesn't want to spend the money on buying an expensive rod to try out a new type of fishing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous, if thats allowed Pretty good
I got this as a christmas present one year as my first and so far, only fly rod. It has been submerged entierly underwater on many occasions and yet still manages to land good fish every time i use it. However, i have one gripe, and that is the flies included. I know most fly fishers go for trout, but couldnt they at least have a popper or bass bug in there? But, besides that, its pretty good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AcWoodATL Awesome Starter Kit!!!
Ths was my flirst fly fishing set up ever. I live next to the chattahoochia in Georgia and have seen LOTS of fly fishiers but always stuck with my spinner. I took notice to the amount of trout and size this one gentlemen had when wading in one day and was astonished. Im IMMEDIATELY had to learn to do this. Mind you I am on a FRUGAL budget. Sp I checked out this and a few others at Dicks, and loved that it came with EVERYTHING you need, well besides the waders and fly's that are hacting particular area. So I got some extra leaders and fly's. once I learned to cast ( friends w/ video camra n internet resources) I went fishing a few times but didnt know too much about reading a river and where trout hide. So nothing. Yesterday my friend and I went out on a canoe and found those spots where the trout are waiting for food, and I caught one with this setup!! The rod and weel weight being (5-6) is a very versatile size. The only thing I wasn't so thrillred about it was the Fly Line, not being a Weight Forward to help newbies like myself cast.... I replaced that and am LOVING iT. The only thing I would say is to get some different fly line and some looped knotless leaders. I would also look at some flies that are very popular for the area and fish you are fishing. Also, [@] had this same set for [$].

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jim problem out of the box
The rubber grommet or tensioner that makes each rod section secure when assembled was cracked out of the box and the rod tip will fly off if you try to cast. Dick's was great in giving a refund; but, I was very surprised that Pflueger does not even carry repair parts and requires a payment before you can send an item for repair....for postage and packaging, I suspect; but, it CAME defective. Anyway, good idea gone bad; I'm buying another rod entirely.
