If you're looking to get into fly fishing but don't want to break the bank doing it, this starter package will put you in the game. Not only will it get you into the game but will grow with you as your skills increase.
We see it every day when trying to help beginners get into fly fishing, the look of bewilderment and the dollar signs rolling through their eyes while explaining what you need. Well we've simplified the process by building you a turn-key setup. This package is made up of high quality components: Sages Approach Rod, Ross Reels Eddy Reel and RIO's fly line and leader.
The only thing you'll need are some flies and to find a stream to fish on.
Calling our Approach series rods "entry level" just doesn't do them justice. Utilizing a higher modulus graphite than any of our previous entry-level rods, the Approach has a medium-fast action that provides excellent line feel and control. Beginning casters can easily grow with this rod without ever feeling they've outgrown it.
A great value with features typically found in higher-priced reels makes the Ross Eddy™ a great starter reel, but also something to grow into, instead of out of. The large arbor design yields an excellent line retrieval rate while simultaneously helping to reduce the amount of line coil, or “memory.” The Ross Eddy™ also features a proprietary AGP coating that ensures a lifetime of use in even the harshest of on-water conditions. The silky-smooth disc drag system is both reliable and strong, two things that are rarely found in a value-priced reel, putting the Ross Eddy™ in a class by itself.
Targeted to the overall needs of the average fly fisher.
RIO's Mainstream series of fly lines have been developed to meet the overall needs of the average and novice fly fisher, and are designed to optimize rod performance with slightly heavier and shorter head lengths. Every Mainstream line undergoes the same rigorous production processes and quality control standards as all RIO fly lines, and is made in RIO's Idaho manufacturing facility. Each line is built with a slick coating on a supple memory-free core, for the best in performance.
The best-selling, most reliable trout leaders in the world.
RIO's Powerflex Trout leaders feature a powerful butt section that provides unsurpassed turn over for effective wind penetration and to easily cast streamers and indicator rigs. Each leader is made with an advanced copolymer material that ensures the highest knot and tensile strength to allow confident hook sets and greater landing percentages. Each Powerflex Trout leader is designed to help you cast better and fish more effectively.
Fly line and leader is spooled on the reel for you.

One of the greatest benefits of always pushing the limits of rod technology is that it gives us vital insights to rod design using previous technologies. Case in point: our medium-fast action ACCEL family of rods. Created using our responsive Generation 5 technology, our ACCEL benefits from key insights garnered through the development of Konnetic Technology. Light and ultra-responsive to throw tight wind-busting loops, it's like going back in time to bet on your favorite sports team with the score in hand - you've got a winner and you know it.
