T&T Paradigm Complete Light Tackle Trout Setup // Spooled, Rigged, and Ready to Fish

Why Purchase a Complete Setup?

Why have we made these pairings, these complete outfits? The answer is simple: We believe strategically paired tackle makes an angler better prepared for success on any given watershed on any given day. As such, we’ve compiled a list of multi-purpose trout rods capable of casting dries, nymphs, and small streamers with precision and purpose. In each complete setup you’ll find top-shelf tackle constructed by the elite companies in our industry—manufactures who’ve earned legacies of excellence through years of dependability and innovation. We are confident these outfits will surpass expectations and serve as the conduit to endless memories through days spent out on the creek. Tight lines.  

T&T Paradigm and Lamson Speedster-S Reel 

Ask a group of experienced anglers to name the greatest dry fly rod of all time, and the T&T Paradigm is sure to be mentioned more than once. Over twenty years later, we’ve followed the same inspiration that made the original into a legend to create a new Paradigm for the 21st century.

While the advance of technology has pushed the limits of rod weight, line speed and casting distance, the essence of stalking a rising trout and presenting the fly remains unchanged. With this in mind, we set out to capture the unique feel that made the original Paradigm fly rods such a magical instrument.

Fly Line for The Light Tackle Trout Rod 

A fly line constructed for dry fly fishing can make or break success. The name of the game is quality, as such, Rio's Technical Trout  is the perfect pairing for dries, nymphs, and soft hackles. Supple yet rigid enough to cast razor sharp loops, the Amplitude Smooth will serve as a dependable, high-performance line for a vast majority of situations encountered on the creek.  

Fishing Leader and Tippet

For this complete kit we've included a two-pack of Rio's 9' 4x leader, a standard used in the majority of the guide boats here at Red's, as well as Rio's Powerflex Plus 4x tippet. This grouping of line material is standard for pursuing trout on western watersheds and trusted amongst countless anglers due to Rio's track record of top-shelf gear. 

Our "Ready to Fish" Setups will ship to you with backing, fly line, and most often the leader installed. Just be sure to let us know if you reel with your right hand, otherwise we default to left hand retrieve.  Do this in the order comments.
