Default Re: First fly rod

I used the Orvis Access 905-4 5wt 9FT 4pcs Mid-Flex as my learning rod. I found it very forgiving and helped me to find my timing and the feeling.
I paired it with the Access IV reel and Rio Gold line.
I think if she can splash our $ for Sage One, she would be able to get the Access Combo kit.

The Access 905-4 is as light as my Helios 905-4 but not as good as the Helios. However, I think it would be a good enough all around rod of a start up rod for her.
I can't comment about Sage, since I only use Orvis and Lamson
