Re: Time to get my own
+1 for what Dennis is saying about a trout reel. In most all "trout" fishing a reel is just there to hold your line, so there isn't any real need to go and buy an expensive reel especially when just starting out. As Dennis said, spend your money on getting a really good fly rod, something you will treasure for the next few decades. You can always upgrade the reel at a later date.
