The rod is a spinning rod not a fly rod as pictured the fly reel is plastic and pretty much a toy. For the money it isn't too bad but you will want to replace the reel.
The spinning combo actually is sort of nice for the price. The fly fishing reel kind of works in Reverse with a drag. It gets tighter rather than looser. While I was fly fishing the other day the rod flew off a few times. Luckily my lawyer was bigger than the top I hope and I did not lose it in the river. So I was able to get it back each time. I like the poles flexibility however I prefer to use this as a spinning set rather than for fly fishing. I like the compactness of the set.
