Re: First fly rod
If you want to buy her a nice rod, and think she's going to stick with it, you might consider picking up a good used Sage RPL, SP, SPL, or ZXL. I've been fly-fishing for 50+ years, and each of these rods is a keeper for sure. All were top of the line rods, all excellent moderate actions, and all terrific rods for beginners thru experts!!
That being said, I do have a Sage "One" 490-4, and am still trying to get a feel for it.
