Default Rod/ Reel Suggestions

Well since I've decided that I love fly fishing and want to do it for a long time, I think it's time to ditch the $50 dollar boxed rod/reel combo I got from dick's and get something a little nicer. That being said, I am looking to keep the rod and reel under $200 combined (not opposed to another combined deal) But if there is a good rod out there, I can still use the reel I have now. I think I'm gonna get 8'6" 5wt rod just for it's versatility. So if you more expirenced guys could point me in the right direction (new or used) I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks!

I have a feeling that you are not going to buy from a local shop, so here you go.

Redington RS4 - If you don't mind a two piece, it's inexpensive. If you want to spend a little more for a four piece, click here.

Redington Surge reel - It comes with a matching Rio Mainstream line, and it's inexpensive.

You should make it out under $200.
