What is Reyr Gear?

Reyr Gear is our #1 trusted and recommended fly rod. Their telescopic rods make fly fishing easy and come ready to set up and use. 

We feel Reyr Gear says it best:

"Our collapsible "FIRST CAST" fly fishing rod is truly different. It stores in a bag at 17" in length. With the reel and line already set up. It uses no eyelets or guides on the exterior, the line travels inside the rod. It is not a traditional fly rod, but fishes and casts like one. It is not a tenkara rod, but packs down smaller than most. It casts further than a tenkara but not quite as far as traditional. It is our take on a fly rod to help you travel easier and get on the water faster." 

With the capability of a reel, and the portability of a Tenkara, the Reyr Gear Fly Rod is half Tenkara, half Fly Rod.

We sell the following products by Reyr Gear on our Gear Room:

  • FIRST CAST Travel Fly Rod v2.0 - 4wt - 9ft
  • FIRST CAST Travel Fly Rod v2.0 - 6wt - 8.5ft
  • Fly + Tool Kit

Fly Rod FAQ's

How do you setup and use the rod?

  • Rod comes with line fed through it and all you need to do is open it up and take a cast, see video HERE  

What if I pull the line out of the rod?

  • You can feed it back through by following this little method HERE  

Can I buy the rod by itself?

  • Not right now. Almost 2 years went into working on this combination of parts to make this rod work well as an easy to use system.  The goal is to give you a package that is ready to go and already setup when the box arrives!

Am I a LEFTY or RIGHTY for ordering?  

  • A bit tricky with rods, but you should hold the rod with your dominant hand, and crank the reel with the other.  The standard offering is for right-handers who hold the rod with their right hand,  the other is for those freakish lefties (like the founder of Reyr Gear) 

Does the reel flip from RIGHTY to LEFTY crank? 

  • YEP!  Flip the bearing on the reel and spool the line the other way if you have the wrong direction crank reel See video HERE on how to do it

Can I change the reel or line once I get it? 

  • Yes these can be changed however you like, but we recommend staying with Reyr Gear line as they worked with engineers and industry experts to make specifically this line work well in the rod 

Can I use the rod in saltwater? 

  • Yep! We would just recommend you take off the butt cap and rinse out the inside when you get home

I got my rod stuck open, what do I do?

  • You don't need much force to secure the rod open, but if it does get stuck at full length a twist of each section is usually most effective, if not bump the bottom of the rod on a solid surface to try and coax it loose 

Do you sell replacement tips and parts? 

  • Reyr Gear covers any parts that are defective or broken in normal use free of charge, just show a picture of what happened and we will work with you to replace what is broken.
  • If your dog ate it or you slammed it in a car door though, you can buy replacement parts HERE
