NXT kits are what the beginning fly caster should demand from the industry. These high-performance fly rods will flatten the learning curve, making it easier and more rewarding to become an active participant in this sport of a lifetime. The rods are a handsome forest green with a composite cork handle for extreme durability. Aluminum oxide stripping guides, chromium-impregnated stainless steel snake guides, and an anodized aluminum reel seat make the NXT family of rods ideal for chasing fish in fresh or saltwater. NXT kits make great gifts for the aspiring fly fisherman and are superb back-up rods for the angler who has everything. Kits include a matching NXT LA I or II reel loaded with weight forward floating line, backing and leader – all in a handsome rod and reel travel case.
