The Fly Shop's Signature Fresh H2O Fly Rod/Reel/Line Outfits

The Fly Shop
$235.00

The best rod for the buck in fly fishing!

Our Fresh H2O Series fly rods are exactly the right choice for most anglers. They're a step away from the ultra-fast action of many contemporary rods and a shift toward a smooth, forgiving action that best suits most of the anglers that step into the boats with our guides or walk into our shop on their way to one of our California rivers, streams, or lakes.

Features Include:

  • Forgiving actions combined with responsive high modulus graphite. It's a marriage of design and materials that compensates for errors and a less than expert casting stroke.
  • Multiple graphite combinations, giving each Fresh H2O rod a slightly different action. Our smooth trout rods don't behave like steelhead rods, and our steelhead rods have the action and power to pack the mail and deliver flies as far as necessary.
  • Every Fresh H2O rod includes an extra tip to insure an accident doesn't spoil a trip, and all the models are now packed into a convenient, sturdy, zippered, segmented, cordura rod/reel case.
  • All Fresh H2O rods have a beautiful, protective Montana green finish, hardwood reel seats, and fighting butts on the seven and eight weights.
  • The Fresh H2O lightweights have enough muscle to cover big spring creeks like Hat Creek or Fall River and still turn over long leaders and dry flies. Our 4 and 5 weight rods naturally open up the loop to turn over long leaders and help present dry flies accurately and delicately.
  • The Fly Shop's® Trinity and Mad River models are virtual wrist rockets that have enough strength to reach out and knock the spots off any trophy trout, bass, or steelhead.
  • Fresh H2O rods are warranteed by The Fly Shop®. We'll replace or repair any Fresh H2O rod for the original purchaser, charging no more than $35 plus $8.95 shipping. It's a great deal without an expensive, hidden premium for a lifetime guarantee.

This is a great looking rod and reel. This rod has a great feel to it. I bought the Fall River rod with the L2a reel. Not sure you can find a better rod and reel for the money.

Got this for my daughter for a Montana trip this summer as an alternative to the usual suspects: orvis, reddington, tfo. The jury won’t be in until after the trip, but I was pleasantly surprised when we threw it in the yard. It is forgiving, but livelier than other rods at this level and my daughter could feel the rod load, which, in my opinion, is so important to developing her cast. Only negative for me was the neon fly line, but maybe that will help her too.

A year ago I called the shop interested in a new rod and reel. They recommended their Signature Fresh H20 with a L2A reel Sacramento #6 combo for a great all around set up. They were spot on! I couldn't be happier with it! Everything from the finish of the rod to the action is outstanding. It handles dry flies with delicate ease and big bass streamers with confidence. The large arbor reel is smooth with plenty of drag power. The finish and look of the reel is amazing, something you have to hold in your hand to truly appreciate. As for The Fly Shop staff they were extremely knowledgeable and very helpful. Their customer service is second to none. I would recommend the combo and the shop to anyone. Thanks again for all your help.
