"Good morning! I wanted to say thank you to the staff at Blackfly Outfitter who helped me put together my first fly rod and reel set up. On a recent trip to Newport, Rhode Island I broke in my new rig by fighting over thirty fish, a mix of Stripers and Bluefish. Thanks again for the help with the setup and starting a new addiction"! .....Thanks, Matt Wallace
