Default Long time fisherman first time fly

I need to know what type of rod and reel and fly line to buy as a newby. We have a bass pro shop here but I think the selection is limited. My budget needs to be less than $200 for the rod reel and line. I live in North La and fish for large mouth bass and bream; however, twice a year I go to the white river at bull shoals dam in arkansas and fish for trout. My trout fishing todate has been with an ultralight rod and reel but i would like to try the fly rod. I have looked in bass pro and cabela's catalog but i am confused as to what to start with. BTW I do have an old 7 ft fly rod with an automatic fly reel; but it is heavy and i think i paid less than $20 several years ago for the set. Thanks in advance for your help.
