    I am assuming you likely bought a 5wt rod for trout fishing? Something that would help us help you is to share the length & rating (5wt, etc) for the rod and what type of fishing you will be using it for. The suggestion you get for trout may be very different than the suggestion you would get if you were, say, steelhead fishing.

    One suggestion I will make is to consider a reel one size up from the size rated for your weight rod. Reels have gotten very light these days. I often find that a slightly larger reel will help you to better balance your rig.

    Also, you will likely want to buy a reel with a disk drag. Some people buy the click & pawl because they like it better, not because it is a better drag system. If this is your first reel and you are simply looking for something good that you can afford, a disk drag is the way to go.

    Edit: BTW... That Greys rod is nice one. I hope you enjoy it!
    I actually got the 4 wt 8'

    For just $20 over budget, you could REALLY class it up with a reel from Grey's parent company - Hardy. The CC line of reels is absolutely beautiful, light, functional, and comes in polished or black in sizes to cover from 2wt to 5wt.

    My buddy has the orange one on a Sage Flight and it looks nice, it is his primary reel on a wt as well. I dont have any pics but the orange is very nice looking as well.
