Re: Trout Fly Gear Suggestions?
Price range would definitely help folks give recommendations.
If your budget is limited, Cabelas offers combos a number of which are under 100. I think my first rod was the Three Forks / Prestige Plus combo in 6wt. It worked just fine for me.
For 200+ Orvis has their Streamline, Clearwater, and Access rod, reel, and line combos that range from 225 - 525. I've fished an Access 8wt and really like it. Talked to folks who really like the Clearwater, but haven't heard anything about the Streamline, I think it's newer. Orvis customer service is great. Of course, if money is not an object, their Helios combo is only 1,200...
