Default New to Fly Fishing in MA

Hi All, I took the 2 day Orvis Fly Casting school in Manchester VT this past weekend and now I'm fired up and ready to jump in to the sport! I am looking for help with fly rod outfit recommendations for up to $350.

I will be fishing small streams & medium size rivers here in MA but also a lot of time on huge lake Winnepesaukee in NH.

Talking with the Orvis guys I think I need a 6 weight set-up to handle the lake and the great smallmouth action plus Trout and Salmon in the Spring while also being able to handle the small trout in the rivers.

I'd like to buy Orvis but the Clearwater outfit for $250 is on backorder until late July and I want something now. The Access is very nice but it costs $500 so too much. Would a 5 weight Clearwater work for what I want to do?Any non Orvis recommendations?

Thanks, Dave
