Review: Redington Topo Outfit

Fly fishing takes a lot of gear, and getting your first rig can be overwhelming. Not so with the Topo Outfit from Redington. The combo setup includes line, tapered leader, tippet, six essential flies, a starter fly box, and nippers, plus a carrying case that allows you to keep your reel attached to the rod. Redington also includes a knot-tying guide and an illustrated guide to reading water. Getting all the essentials at once allows you to focus on one thing: fishing. The Topo Outfit is also a great option for anglers on a budget, as the whole unit costs about as much as a pair of sunglasses. Available at Grizzly Outfitters and Gallatin River Guides. $220;
