This is a cheap fly rod, and you're getting what you're paying for. I've fished with much better quality rods, and I recommend talking to a professional before making an investment into something like this. That said, I've caught about 200 cutthroats and rainbows with this setup, using custom flies. If you're concerned about whether or not it will catch fish, it will. For beginners, it's going to be more frustrating than it's worth. Don't even bother using the flies that come with it. For someone with some fly fishing experience under their belt, you can make this rod work if you know what you're doing. For beginners, go to an actual fly/tackle shop a few times, talk to people who know what they're doing, and save up for something better worth your time. I'll keep this rod around as an extra, but it will not be my go-to tool compared to other rods.
