From the tying bench to the side of the stream, our annual roundup of the hottest new fly-fishing gear
Best for Kids
The future of fly fishing depends on attracting new anglers, including kids, and that’s where Redington’s Minnow Combo comes in. The outfit incudes a four-piece, 8½-foot 5-weight rod, a Crosswater reel, RIO Mainstream weight-forward floating line and a nine-foot leader, all in a Cordura case. With its shorter length and smaller handle, this smooth-casting medium-action rod is ideal for young fly anglers—all at a reasonable price.
