Re: New fisherwoman in Washington
I think a four to five weight will do you about right. You can get a decent combo at Cabelas or BPS that won't break the bank. You can check online before getting there on basic flies for trout. Then when you get to the area, you can still go to the fly shop and pick out a few more regional type flies. Google fly fishing clubs in that area, and contact a couple. They may have a website with just what you are looking for!
As long as I get a bite, I don't want to leave!
