However, as my username indicates, I currently have a 4wt and would like to end up having an 8 or a 9, as well as a super lightweight rod.

I have an Orvis near me, but they're too pricy (though NICE!). I was curious if anyone here had recommendations for less expensive rods (and reels to go with them), with the caveat that I understand that you get what you pay for.

Thanks for any tips!
The high end rod you want that you find on ebay, in great shape, at the price you want to pay. Might take patience but worth it. Give it a try.
