I'm being a little facetious but which set up do you plan on starting out with?
My wife got me (at my request and at the recommendation of one of the ambassadors, Tom Sadler) the Ito.

I have both the traditional line and a level line. For flies I have the Ishigaki, Takayama, Oki and Amano.

The official Tenkara USA Summit is actually being hosted here in May. Hopefully I can make it.
