The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

This product is specifically for the individual who it is looking at getting started in fly fishing. This outfit is completely setup and ready to hit the water and comes in a 5wt and 8wt option cover most freshwater applications. This fly rod is known for breaking in the tip section and I suggest grabbing an extra tip from TFO to keep on hand. For the price, this is one of the best outfit options under $250. One advantage that this fly rod outfit has over most in its category is the cast aluminum reel unlike the plastic molded reels from other manufactures.

Ideal for
  • Great for anyone getting started in fly fishing.
  • Setup and ready with backing, fly line, and leader.
  • Comes with a lifetime no-fault warranty.
Not ideal for
  • These fly rods are known for breaking in the tip section. I consider the Pro II a better and more durable option.
  • Due to wear and tear, the fly line will need to be replaced within six months to a year. I suggest Rio Gold.

The TFO NXT Black Label Series is an affordable and versatile medium-fast action rod with excellent feedback and performance for all skill levels. This is a combo kit and includes everything you need to get started: rod, reel, case, backing, fly line, and tapered leader. Key Features: - Medium-Fast Action - The versatile action is forgiving for new casters and yet powerful enough for casting on those windy days. - Stainless-Steel Disc Drag System Reel - The sturdy, corrosion-resistant design works for both fresh and saltwater fishing alike. - Weight-Forward Floating Fly Line - Great choice for a variety of water conditions and the welded loop makes swapping out leaders a breeze. - Temple Fork Outfitter's Unconditional Lifetime 'No Fault Warranty' - The warranty is a safeguard for those 'oops' moments when you inevitably snap a rod section.

This is a good starter rod. It tends to be good test rod for beginner fly fishers that will help you decide if the sport is for you. It is stout rod that handles strong fish well. The rod is on the heavier side and may tire your arm out with use throughout the day. The Nxt Black Label fly... Read more

I'm an intermediate angler with little knowledge of equipment. Rylyn was very responsive to all my questions, even the ones I thought were stupid. Very open about what he does and how he is paid. I highly recommend him.

Helped me with some valuable fly fishing knowledge that I lack coming from the conventional fishing world. Hooked me up with a good starter rod and even price matched it with another company. Will be coming back for a reel soon.
