Fly Rod Description:
The "Sky High" range of rods are fast action, light, tough rods that excel at distance casts in windy conditions, but are accurate and cast well at short distances. They're a great all round rod and are adept at casting dry flies, nymphs, streamers, and are suitable for lighter saltwater fishing. This is the rod you've dreamed of having maybe three rods into your fly fishing days, only it's priced so you don't have to fish rubbish rods for years!
Built of incredibly tough, yet light and responsive, high modulus nano silica carbon, using thermoplastic thermoset resins that don't affect responsiveness. This carbon was originally developed for helicopter blades to be light and resist torsion, which translates to being able to fish these all day and throw unbelievably straight casts.
This is great for both the experienced caster and beginner alike.

Fly Line Description:
If you had to have one fly line to get started on, this would be the one. And for a backup. And for an experienced fly fisherman... This is a great all round fly line for your standard cold water conditions such as trout and salmon fishing. The taper design gives great loop stability at distance, a profile that allows a rod to load at close range and a front taper that delivers great presentation of flies between sizes #22 and #2.
