Default Re: New member / new to fly fishing

I guess I'm trying fly fishing now as I'm older and have time and money to do things.

I'm ready to order a reel and rod tomorrow. I'm really leaning towards a size 1 allen trout II and a TFO 9' 4wt. I'll be able to do lot of fishing here in AZ for 1/2 to 1 1/2 lb rainbows in the salt river and a couple times a year to better fishing up north in WY or MT. Hence the reason I'm leaning more towards the 4wt than the 5wt.

I'm also torn between the trout II at $144 and another $50 or so for line or a lamson guru for $189 with free line. Cost wise it's a wash and from what little I know the Guru looks to be a better reel, at least the drag system seems better.

Any last minute opinions are welcome! I'm still not 100% sure about the 4 or 5wt. But it's not like this will be the only time I buy a reel/rod either.

Jeff
