Well I just got a call and my mom wants to learn to fly fish.so I need a low end fly rod for my mom to use to learn.

Nothing to trade, but if you want a low cost beginner rod, check out the Flextec CRX88. It'll run you about $83 off ebay, including shipping. There's some reviews of it on the UK forums. Got one for my son and I'm quite pleased with it. I should say that I still consider myself a flyfishing noob, so have a look at what's on the UK side about it.

Take a look at the fairly new TFO Bug Launcher. Smaller grips for smaller hands, $79.99.

Bug Launchers.

You can get the Martin Caddis rod and reel for 20.00. You just have to add backing line and tippet. Thats the rod I use and works pretty good. I'm getting ready to build my rod.

A Cabelas Three Forks will run you about $50-$60. I have one and like it and most comments are favorable. You'd need a reel--a Pflueger medalist would set her up nicely.
