Default Re: First rod advice

I'd get a kit, but not the cheapest one. Get something that you're going to want to use.
My first 2 rods.... the 5wt I gave away, the 9wt gets little use.

Hook & Hackle is always having sales.
Today they've got the PacBay Rainforest kits on sale for not much over 100 bucks.. that's a nice rod IMO. I use my 8wt all the time.
