The staff at Pacific Fly Fishers is always on the lookout for the best products at every price. We especially look for the best possible rods at inexpensive prices. The Redington Path is leaps and bounds better quality and a better casting rod than many rods of the same price and even more. It is easy-casting, lightweight, versatile, and comes with a lifetime original owner warranty. It features an easy casting, medium-fast action that is ideal for beginning anglers but has plenty of punch to drive casts for long distances or into the wind when necessary.
We have combined the Redington Path rod with a Redington Surge reel which is a higher quality reel than the "pre-packaged" Redington Path packages you'll see on the web (and our catalog). The Surge reel is still a very affordable reel made of cast aluminum with a smooth drag and an excellent track record here at our store. The Surge reel in size 5/6 balances perfectly with the Redington Path 9-foot 5-weight rod included in this package. Together, this outfit is the perfect all-round trout rod for rivers, streams and most lake applications.
To complete the outfit, we have also included the popular RIO Mainstream floating line which is easy to cast, durable, and covers nearly all you need for trout fishing rivers and streams. We even include backing and an Umpqua 9-foot 5X leader so your outfit is ready to fish when it arrives.
Take this outfit to just about any trout river in the country and you’re off and rolling on the right foot!
