If you go to the top of the page and click on the Shopping menu and choose MarketPlace. Take a look at the Sage Flight 9' 5wt that is under your budget. You should also look at the Redington RS4 to save some money or the Redington CPX. All of these rods are within your budget and will work in your area.
Buying from the MarketPlace helps to support NAFFF.
I will check it out right now, thanks for the advice. I would go out now to look but team USA is about to play at 3 and I don't want to miss the Hockey game. lol. Anyway I will probably go tomorrow morning to look at the shops again and head up to the South Holston Shop as well.
