Question Wild water fishing setup?

Does anyone have any information on the wild water brand? I purchased a pole from them today 3/4 wt. hoping to use this up in Pittsburg next month. Worried that I didnít get a size large enough. The whole set up was $108 and came with a whole bunch of stuff. Been spinning all my life and off shore but no fly. Any info would be appreciated

I don’t know the brand, but I would suspect you’ll be fine with that set up. The water up there isn’t terribly large. A 3 wt is a little light, a 4 is near perfect.

I had a Wild Water switch rod for a while. 11' 7-wt. I used it a couple seasons in NY for steelhead. It was quite inexpensive, as I got it from the manufacturer during the Marlborough show that year. Liked it a lot.

Ended up selling it to someone else on this forum for him to use on the Pemi (if I recall correctly).

Nice rod for the money. Kinda wish I still had it.

In terms of interest, it is for me ahead of most downstream fishing and spinning. And I've already opined that spinning is better than staying at home with the television set.

Thanks guys I really appreciate all the feedback. Iím glad to hear from someone else who has purchased a wild water setup. It looked too good to be true to me. It also had great reviews. The only downside was they were mostly from beginner fishermen like myself who havenít used anything else. Iíll be sure to give back with a fishing report when Iím up there
