Alaska Salmon - Affordable Rod & Reel Outfit
Located in the Seattle area, our fly shop is a common stop for anglers heading to Alaska from all over the world. Each year we outfit hundreds of anglers heading north to experience the bounty of Alaska's salmon. We put together this Affordable Alaska Salmon Package with some of our favorite, value-minded products in the store. We know you’ll be satisfied when your package arrives and you hook and fight your first salmon.
If you’re fishing for silver, chum, or sockeye salmon, this 8-weight rod and reel package will have you ready to go without a giant price tag. The Redington Vice rod is easy casting, light in hand, and one of our favorite rods under $250. The Sage 2280 reel has the drag to subdue large fish and the ability to retrieve fly line quickly during the fight. The RIO Mainstream fly line teamed with an Airflo PolyLeader makes casting and mending easy while getting your flies down to where the fish are.
This outfit will arrive all setup. Just add your favorite salmon fly and you’ll be ready to fish. This outfit is also well suited to steelhead, pike, bass and light saltwater applications like bonefish (a different line is recommended for bonefish).

RIO Mainstream Floating Fly Line - 8wt
RIO Mainstream fly lines are fantastic fly lines that cast and fish very well. This weight-forward, floating fly line is as easy to cast as anything out there and is well suited to this rod/reel outfit. Mainstream lines are developed with a cold water coating for optimum performance in salmon and trout environments. They are slightly heavier than standard line weights which helps them cast the included sinking PolyLeader and cast large salmon flies. More info.
Airflo PolyLeader - Salmon/Steelhead - 10ft - Super Fast Sinking
Airflo PolyLeaders are a leader that attaches to your fly line like a leader but is coated in a tungsten impregnated plastic like a sinking fly line. In short, attach the PolyLeader to a floating fly line and it fishes like a sink-tip fly line. Take it off and you are back to just a floating fly line. Airflo PolyLeaders are super versatile and can be purchased in a number of different sink rates. Included in your outfit is a "Super Fast Sinking" 10-foot PolyLeader which sinks at 4.9 inches per second. When we prepare your outfit for you, we will attach your PolyLeader to your fly line and also attach a section of 16lb tippet so that you are ready to fish when your outfit arrives. More info.
Your outfit will come with the perfect amount backing already loaded onto the reel and attached to your line. We only use the best knots to rig your setup. We use the Albright Knot with a lock then sealed with glue to connect your backing to your running line.
