You might find yourself wondering how exactly you're supposed to figure out what you need as a budding fly fisherman or woman who wants to stop reading forums on fishing gear and simply wants to get on the water. Fortunately, the folks at Orvis get it. That's why they made the Encounter 9' 6" 6-Weight Fly Rod Outfit with everything you need to get out for a full day of fishing. A slightly longer than standard rod gives you plenty of casting power for fishing big rivers as well as still water lakes and ponds, without losing out on accuracy. The Orvis Encounter Reel features a large arbor to help you take up slack faster, and the disc drag system gives you the perfect amount of fish fighting resistance. Tack on the included floating line, backing, leader, and rod tube, and you've got the perfect package at an irresistible price.
