Looking for a beginner fly rod and reel
« on: December 18, 2019, 11:53:50 AM »
So my high school aged daughter told me last night she wants to learn how to fly fish. I don't fly fish  :dunno: but I have somebody who will teach her the basics but she needs a rod and reel. Being a teenager she may not end up liking it...so if you have something useable and it's taking up space let me know. I'm in Snohomish county.
Thanks,
Mike BD1

Have you checked your local thrift/ goodwill stores.
And does she already enjoy fishing?
If so look into a combo fly/ spin pack rod.
Love my Eagle Claw “Pack It” 4 piece 7wt. Had it since I was 12yo
Then go hit some hike in lakes with her
One shot. One kill!
