Go Outdoor fly fishing starter kit?

Recommended Posts

A little bit of instruction can go a long way - might be worth spending £30 on an hour's tuition if you get the chance. Still, if you can put a fly where you want it, that's good enough!

How about a friend and free advice from your tackle shop instead?

The tackle shop I go to doesn't sell fly fishing gear, just the odd fly or too.

But it could be worth a shot.

No, same problem here. The one in the town centre has a few bits of fly fishing gear, as does the one in Cirencester. My nearest tackle shop has none (not much at all, in fact, but carp fishing gear). Go Outdoors has more fly fishing kit than any of them and I suspect about as much product knowledge. If I want a proper fly fishing shop with knowledgeable staff it's a twenty mile drive to Orvis at Burford or for more choice a forty mile drive to Sportfish at Reading.

 

As a result, I buy a lot of stuff mail order.

why dont you look at the Airflo Kits http://www.gooutdoors.co.uk/airflo-fly-kit-9ft-6-7-line-p154003 as they offer value for money and will contain all you need to start fishing with a balanced outfit, the 9' 6-7# should meet your needs. Also get some casting tuition if you can it will stop you developing faults in your casting which will only casue you problems later on.

You know what Tony, I might just buy it :). I think I will buy the discount card for £5 a year then buy the pack so it's £65 instead of £80.

I'm a tight one me ;)

I would second the airflo kits, very good quality for the money.

Try here http://www.stivestackle.co.uk/airflo-starter-fishing-p-1157.html

 

Seems a tad expensive where you are looking to be honest.

 

Good luck

Ive recently taking up fly fishing, i bought a Ron Thompson evo concept fly rod for £10 from go outdoors and a shakespear reel for £15. good value for money if you ask me, defintly worth buying from go outdoors if you have the discount card. Being a begginer myself spending £25 on fly gear isnt too bad!

 

matt.


Theres only two days i like to go fishing, when its raining and when its not.

I would go for the Airflo branded fly starter kits. A good mid range kit rather than cheap and nasty.

have a look here at Airflo

 

These are very popular and all other Airflo lines etc are available individually.
