Beautiful small stream outfit, 6th Aug 2018

Reviewer: Hugh Semple

First, thanks are due to Bow River Troutfitters for their excellent communication throughout the purchase. I took the 4 wt outfit to the Upper Oldman area for its inaugural test. After a few adjustments, it performed beautifully and we pulled out lots of Cutthroat. A 37 cm specimen provided the most fun.

Great starter combo, 30th Sep 2016

Reviewer: Desn Myers

Having used a few other rods and combos, I can say that this is an excellent trout kit. The rod is sensational, excellent feel and action, makes throwing long, tight casts easy, has a nice finish and quality guides that are well wrapped, and the anodized uplock reel seat provides a secure grip and stays tight. The reel is Echo brand (made by Ross?) and good quality, large arbor, smooth retrieve, good drag with a nice finish. The line is Rio Mainstream I think, FW and perfectly matched to the rod...that is, the 5wt rod works well with 5wt lline, unlike some rods. The case is also quite decent and includes an internal sock. For the money, no way you can do better than this combo.
