i then bought some flies, leaders, tippits, etc, so OTD i dropped 350 roughly.

thanks buddy, thats very generous of you. i know my g/f wants to get me a gift to help me get started

thanks, i've done it one day before when i lived in UT. caught 3 fish, and really really enjoyed it, so im sure ill put this set up to good use.
actually i just checked and found pics of that day, now that i think abou tit, im happy to have a pic of very first fish i caught on a FLY rod
o and i know some guys will say i shouldnt take fish out of water to take pics. i kept that one for dinner, other 2 went right back in the water though
