Although I've delved into fly fishing many years ago I would consider myself relatively new to fly fishing altogether so take this review as you will. While searching for a decent fly rod and reel I found that this SLV rod paired with the SLV reel is about the most affordable rod and reel combo out there (if you don't count the cheapie Walmart special combos, which was not what I was looking for). However I've always been a super great fan of Okuma rods, I have several SST series spinning rods and I love them for the value. There are certainly better rods out there for sure but what you get for the money you pay is really good so I decided to purchase the SLV fly rod because of my faith in Okuma, plus all the positive reviews I've read. I really don't have anything negative to say. The quality of the rod seems pretty good, made with quality components and such - just as I expected. As far as the performance I would say that I'm quite satisfied. This rod allows me to do everything that I need and/or want to do: overhead casting, single-handed spey casting, mending...paired with the SLV fly reel spooled with Wulff Ambush Triangle Taper flyline, I can do all these very well with this rod. Again I'm a beginner so I don't have the advantage of comparing this rod with higher quality rods, but it is serving me quite well for what I bought it for.


Pros: Very affordable, gets the job done, great value

Cons: not much, if anything

Best Uses: River Fishing, fly fishing

This year the Salmon were big and they were everywhere. I mean really, really big. Fighting a 30# as it screamed the line off of your reel should be no problem for this Rod and the price was more than right.

I can get 65 feet accurately, beyond that I strain. But I'm an old fart, and new to SW fly. In shore you don't need distance, you need to hit spots. If you stalk the salt marsh, or the flats, you'll like this rod. It's not the right one for the beaches & jetties, where the wind demands a stiff fast rod. Put an Okuma Integrity "a" 10/11 WT cork drag large arbor reel on it. (make sure it's the "a") Load 200yd min of "power pro" gel spun backing wound on with tight tension. Add a good 10 WF floater.(that's the only thing you can't cheap out on.) Now you'll have the perfect combination for in-shore stripers n blues. Best of all you won't have to rollover your mortgage to get your rig. Watch the backing though,gel spun will cut your fingers like a box knife.

Pros: Accurate Casting, Flexible

Cons: none

Great 3-weight!!!

Eielson AFB, AK

About Me:

In my quest for a reasonably priced 3-weight for interior AK arctic grayling, I spent several days researching various manufacturers' rods. Most were outrageously priced and were shorter than I prefer. In my experience, 6 - 7.5' rods do not cast very well on windy days and lack backbone. In the end I opted for the 8' 3-weight (marked as such, not 2/3 as sellers claim) and topped it with a matching Okuma SLV 2/3 reel. It's basic, for sure, but just plain works. It has proven itself to be a smooth, excellent and accurate casting rod. It has fought literally hundreds of grayling these past 2 weeks, and has easily handled fish up to 15", even in fast water! I am having a blast and this rod has quickly become my favorite! The true test will be in a couple more weeks when it regularly sees 16-18" summer fish. I'm sure it will be up to the task, though! I highly recommend! Thank you FishUSA and Okuma for providing me exactly what I wanted!

Pros: Durable, Easy To Transport, Accurate Casting, Good Tip Action, Sensitive, Flexible

Being new to AK, I purchased the 8' 3-weight for arctic grayling. I had never used a rod this light before but was pleasantly surprised. It casts very nicely even with an indicator and small split shot. It feels like a medium action rod to me. The real seat, cork, eyes and wraps are all basic but fully functional. With the grayling not in yet, I decided to try it for arctic char in lakes right after ice out. It performed like a champion, easily handling several hard charging, 12-16" char.....and boy, was it fun!!!

This rod was ok for Salmon this autumn in Pulaski. Got the 8/9 and I'd say this rod definitely leans towards the #8 side of the equation. It felt a bit weak with the 20-30lb salmon I was hooking. Was also a bit poor on casting with a #9 line, though the river didn't require any long or finessed casting. If I could do it over I probably would have gone with the #10/11 version, possibly with a #9 line.

Pros: none

This fly rod has a great feel. It has features found on rods twice to 3 times the price. I have used this rod several times for surf fishing and it was up to the task. Caught a 8 lb. halibut while fishing with a clouser minnow while I was standing on the beach. The fish was maybe in 2 ft. of water. What a fight. Went into my backing 3 times. Matched it with a Okuma Sierra 5/6 reel with 5 wt line. What a great balanced outfit.

Pros: Accurate Casting, Beautiful finish, Easy To Transport, Sensitive, Quality Guides, Great price

Cons: none
