Whether you’re looking to expand your fly fishing equipment collection, or to pick up the perfect gift for the angler in your life, AvidMax has a variety of fly fishing combos for sale that are perfect for any experience level and any budget.
Also known as a fly fishing outfit, these pre-created packages make finding a unified set-up a breeze. From beginners to experts, we offer an outfit for every level with a variety of weight options to suit your needs.
The advantages of fly fishing outfits
Each time you put together the components for a complete fly fishing setup, you've got to ensure that you have a matching rod, reel, line and backing. Then, you'll need the right leader, supply of tippet, a storage case, and a collection of flies for the outfit's weight class. Our combo fly rod outfits limit the amount of research you need to put into each individual component, leaving more time for you to get on the water. It can also be a cost-effective way to get a complete set up put together for beginners, upgrading your gear, or for new types of water and fish species.
Here are a few other upsides for purchasing combos from AvidMax:
Rods and reels are already matched for balance
One and done: Purchase everything at once, and feel confident about your package choice
Fly fishing outfits are usually less expensive than when each component is sold separately, and there's a combo for every budget or level of expertise
Fly fishing packages for every angler
A fly fishing combo makes the perfect gift for yourself or the angler in your life, no matter their skill level. The sport is as much about collecting and refining your setup and gear as it is about actually getting a fly in front of a fish.
Matched combos also don't require you to be a gear nerd. We have carefully crafted these set-ups to take the pressure of research off your plate and provide you with a combo fly rod outfit that performs well.
Need some help picking the right outfit? Choosing the correct rod weight is a good place to start. Here are a couple of quick tips:
1-4 are lighter weights for smaller streams and smaller fish.
4 is a good bridge to 5 and 6, which are great all-around weights most often used for slow-moving, smaller waterways or trout ponds.
7 and 8 will be better suited for slightly wider rivers, but 8 can, like 9 and 10, manage larger freshwater fish, especially in the deeper and faster water of spring and fall. They're also useful for bigmouth and smallmouth bass, and a variety of saltwater species like snappers and sea trout.
Are you planning on saltwater fishing? Use a heavier weight from 10 through 12.
Novices usually start with a 5- or 6-pound setup and branch out from there according to the water and conditions most readily available to them. If you are still unsure about which outfit would be the best fit for you, contact one of our knowledgeable staff members for guidance.
