Well...If you want to go with Orvis, take a look at this: CLICK HERE Combine that
with an Orvis BBS III, and that should be a sweet outfit.

That Orvis Battenkill Large Arbor reel is as sweet as it gets.
The T3 rod in 4wt will handle trout up to 6 pounds easily.
The Sage XP is a long caster that you will mature into with experience.
I would suggest a day with a Certified Instructor would really super-charge your learning curve.
Also..my favorite fly line would be Scientific Anglers Trout in wf4f for tossing streamers,nymphs & dries.

im an orvis fan, there stuff is high quallity and the warranty on the rod is great. the t3 is a phenominal rod, super strong and very light. its a beautiful fly rod and you get a grin ear to ear just holding it. there are better rods out there but they do cost alot more. as for the reel, i have that one in a 4wt black and it too is quality throughout. i cant believe the price on the reel. when i bought mine it was 150. i put the gen3 wounderline on that reel that orvis was pushing so hard...i give it about a 7-8 outta 10 not bad. it needs to float higher longer. but i give orvis a 10 for products and service, cause i delt with them too. they made this customer happy. BUT there waders suck! sorry. i highly recommend that set up.
