McCarthy, Chris

I’ve always been wary of buying a complete fly rod in a box—the kind where the only thing not already set up is the fly. Thankfully, the aptly named Pursuit Rod and Reel by Redingtin has changed my mind. This four-piece outfit comes ready-to-fish, the reel already spooled with Rio Mainstream WF fly line, leader, and tippet; plus, it includes a carrying case with room to leave the reel attached. The Pursuit uses tip-over-butt construction and the ferrules are finished with alignment dots, making it easy to match up the sections. The four-weight, eight-foot rod is ideal for the smaller streams in our area, and the rod is very responsive and casts accurately. Not only could I place my fly in some really tight areas, but I could also get longer casts on more open water. Available at Bob Ward’s, Grizzly Outfitters, and Wholesale Sports. $180; redington.com
