Great rod-med action

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The best part of this package is the rod. It has great flow and is a medium action that is forgiving for a beginner and yet sensitive and responsive for an experienced fly fisher.
Reel is okay, but not so impressed by the line included.

Unanswered Question

How much does this entire package weight and what is the total length of the case. Needing dimensions for my backpack trio I'm about to head out on.

Other than the fact it is 5wt, forward, tapered line, what backing and fly line come loaded on this outfit out of the box? Would you replace it with anything for both?
If so, what would you recommend?

Hey Rollingfox! Emory your personal gear head here. I am pretty sure it just comes loaded with generic 20lb dacron backing and a generic WF 5 floating line. Nothing brand specific. I am contacting Fenwick and Pfleuger and will let you know what they tell me. I would try the line out when you get the set up and see how it casts/performs and go from there. Based on that I can recommend a replacement line, if or when you are ready to replace it. Talk to you soon!

Great Value

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Great Setup, Great Value

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is my first flyrod setup (although I have been fishing for some time), and I love this setup. The package comes complete with just about everything you need, short of a box full of flies. The medium/fast action rod is forgiving for beginners, and gives room to progress as skills improve. The medalist reel is a tried and tested classic, and there is not much better than the sound of the click and pawl reel when a fish takes off with your fly. Overall, hard to beat the value you get with the Fenwick Eagle Medalist setup, whether you are a beginner, or a seasoned vet wanting to add another complete setup to your quiver.
