After thinking, reading, thinking, and reading some more, I believe my first fly reel will be this cheap pflueger:

And since I have a gift card to Academy, and I have no need of pretty much anything else from academy, I think I'll splurge and pick up this St. Croix rod:

Academy - St. Croix Rio Santo 9' Freshwater Fly Rod

I believe this should be a pretty good starter fly rig, right?

I'll pick up a few flies and maybe a cheap fly case to get me started while I'm there, then slowly pick up a few other things as I need them. Next on the list will be a good cheap rod/reel case. The one's at bass pro shop look decent, and I like the idea of leaving the reel on the rod.
