Default Re: Advice for fly gear gift please

Hi,

Thank you for your replies.

The gift-certificate idea seems a good one, except that I really would prefer offering the goods... We have, in our family, an unexplainable aversion to gift-certificates...

About 300 won't break my bank and I think (hope) that can make for good fly gear?... My husband would be starting out in fly fishing (doesn't have fly gear yet), but he's been talking about for years and has just recently gotten back into fishing (kids, like, etc. had gotten in the way).

So, what I'm really looking for is brand, model recommendation for someone starting out at fly fishing. Also, is the length of the rod supposed to be in relation to the length of the fisherman or in relation to what he wants to fish and/or he fishes? It's so confusing.

Thank you for any help. :-)
