Instead of the term “entry level,” we prefer to describe our new Encounter rod outfits as “affordable awesomeness.” Built for the hardcore angler, yet priced with frugality in mind, the Encounter rod series combines state-of-the-art rod design with a smooth, crisp performance—packaged with a large arbor Encounter reel (size II), 5-wt. line, backing, leader, and a rod/reel case. The 8'6" 5-weight is the best all-around freshwater rod for trout and light bass fishing and is considered to be the perfect first rod for any fly angler. Small streams, big rivers, or ponds and lakes, this new 8'6" 5-wt. Encounter rod outfit is the perfect answer to the question, “What’s the first rod I should buy?”.
