Default WTB: Beginner Rod & Reel 5 wt.

I'm totally new to fly fishing and need a rod and reel. I could just order a combo from Cabela's, but thought I would check elsewhere first. I'm thinking $150-$200 is about my upper limit, just to see if I like it. I'm planning to be doing some smallmouth fishing on creeks and small rivers, as well as some trout. Looking for a 5 wt. 7'6"-8'6" 4-piece rod.

I went the Cabelas rout and picked up their 5wt rod/reel pkg... the way I figure, if I fish this one season and don't like it... I'm only out 100 bones instead of 200 plus. Also, I like the rod and reel... it's got a good action and works well... just wish I would've bought the four piece instead of the two.
