Starting fly fishing has never been easier. Keeper Starter sets (2 models available) include fly rod, fly reel, backing, balanced fly line and a leader. Everything is ready and pre-spooled, you just select a fly from the complimentary fly box, tie it to the end of the leader and you are set to go. Of course, practicing on a field or on a lakeshore without a fly (use some visible wool or similar instead) is always recommendable. Four piece dark grey rod has a smooth medium action and is extremely easy to use. It comes with a protective Cordura tube. Bright yellow floating fly line is visible (makes practicing easier) and matches perfectly for the rod. Black fly reel has a nice brake and plenty of space for your backing and fly line. Fly box includes a couple of flies so that you can start fishing immediately, although after a while you will end up either buying some new flies or you will start tying your own flies. Polarized sunglasses are a must for all fly fishermen. They will help you see under the surface while fishing (good for spotting some active fish and finding a safe route while wading), but more importantly they will protect your eyes from rogue flies - yours or your fishing pal standing next to you. De-barbing your fly hooks is always a good idea - you will loose very few fish for using barbless hooks but it will make you life so much easier if you have to remove a fly for example from your ear.
Keeper Starter set is packed in a compact cardboard box, which is suitable for wall display.
