Thread: 2011 Equipment For A Beginner

    I'd go with a sage vantage or flight, and a Ross evolution and a full day guided trip on the waters you will be fishing. At least that's what I'd do if I was starting out and had a grand to spend on things.

    The Rio grand could warrant a 6wt, bigger water.
    The local trib-streams are quite a bit smaller, 5wt would be perfect for those.
    If you will use the rod for both indicator and dry fly, you will need a stiffer rod.
    The Z-axis will do the job for both. The flight will work too, but is slightly heavier.
    I would suggest a reel with a disc drag, as opposed to a click/pawl.
    The RG has some impressive fish.
    A half guide day is a good call. Learn water and rods at the same time.
    Very efficient! Good luck with the search. You'll have lots of great water to learn on.
    I second getting to know the local shop. If we don't support them, they won't be there.
    PM if you have questions.

    Ultimately, it's not catching fish that satisfies, but knowing how.
