Many anglers have started their fly-fishing journey with a handed down Fenwick fly rod out of their grandparents’ garage. Now this beloved and iconic brand has taken home the first-place award for the NightHawk X Fly Combo. The Fenwick Nighthawk X Fly Combo took the top honor in the Saltwater Combo category as part of the 2022 Fly Fishing Show’s Consumer Choice Awards.
Equipped with a lightweight composite fly reel that’s pre-spooled with quality backing, weight-forward line, and a leader, the combo is ready to hit the water right out of the box. What’s more, the line comes with a 1-year limited warranty, perfect for anglers who want to dip their toe into saltwater fly fishing but don’t want to spend a fortune to do so.
“We are proud of the craftsmanship behind this affordable saltwater combo and are excited that fly anglers recognize the effort behind bringing an entry level saltwater combo to market. The Nighthawk X Combo is a great tool to get you on the water and is made to be passed along to the next generation, as well.” said Jim Murphy, Director of Fly Fishing for Fenwick.
The Fenwick NightHawk X Fly Combo is a medium-action rod that’s easy to cast for beginners and avid anglers alike. With its legendary performance, this best-in-class combo is constructed with graphite so it’s light in the hand and comes in size 7/8 which is the perfect all-around saltwater weight for beach fishing. The combo comes in four-pieces making it an easy travel companion and includes rod, reel, backing, line and leader. Just add flies and you’re ready to hit the beach.
