Welcome to the forum and to the USA.
There's plenty of flyfishing gear in different prices to select from.
Flyfishing may be expensive, but there are lower priced (but not lower quaility) alternatives. I've used stuff from Cabela's and Bass Pro Shops, and it worked nicely for me.
I had the Hobbs Creek combo (I was a bonehead for giving it away) from Bass Pro Shops. I liked the outfit and it was fun to use. I miss that combo and I just may purchase another one...but this time I'll line that reel with Cabela's "prestige plus" flyline and go out and have fun. I had the 7 1/2' model in 4wt...I caught plenty of largemouth bass and bluegills with that!
If you have the opportunity to visit a Cabela's or Bass Pro Shops, please do...these stores have plenty of gear in different price points. For around $150, you can get a nice flyrod outfit.
