Default Re: Advice for fly gear gift please

Todays fishing combos are so much nicer than ever. I would suggest you get a 4 piece rod setup in either an 8'6" or 9' rod. Fraink's suggestions are nice and sound options. There are so many values today you would never have seen 15 yrs ago. TFO has a Finesse series rod you should consider while Lamson makes the Konic and Velocity fly reels for modest values. All good stuff. There are perhaps 4 or more options today for every one you had when I got into the sport. I too would recommend a 5 wt. Good Luck and have fun.
