So I talked to the guys at Leland about the best rod for a beginner because I want to get into the sport. They said this rod is what they use to teach. Plus you can't beat the price. Burk actually took the time to give me some casting tips when I went to their shop to buy it. I don't know all that much yet butthis rod feels good. Thanks Burk.

Hi… if you are new to fishing and don’t want to end up broke then Sonoma Trout combo is what you need. It’s crafted in such a way that you will never want to stop fishing. The accuracy with which I could cast the dry fly made me ecstatic. This is one outfit which is apt for beginners as well as experienced anglers. Moreover it can cast any trout fly. The whole fishing experience got a new meaning for me after I set my hand on this. This is a ‘must-have’- Go get it!!
