    Consider an Albright A5ns, on line, for around $150.00. I have one and its a good rod.

    Love these rods. Great price point.

    I own the 7 2wt and the 8ft 4wt.
    Great performer for the price. Very nice finish.

    A cheap real that i found on sale, is the cabelas prestige fly reel, normal price is $50 they are on cabelas website on sale for $25, they have a 3-4, 5-6, and a 7-8. Figured i would throw it out there since it has very good reviews.

    I would have to agree about the Temple Fork Outfit rods. Good rods at a good price.

    I was at Bass Pro today and kind of impulse-bought an 8wt Temple Forks rod... on sale for $90. Not bad! Already have a good reel for it. Will be trying for striper in Rhode Island tomorrow.

    Thanks for all the advice guys.

    Sounds like a great deal. !

    Bought a TFO Lefty Kreh finesse series 2 weight and mated it with a battenkill I. A wonderful combo less than $300.

    All I have are "less expensive" outfits. My favorite is a TFO Pro 8'6" 4wt. with a Battenkill Bar Stock reel. It just feels good to me. I have a Clearwater II with a Rocky Mountain Turbo that I like pretty well. Also a TFO Finesse 2wt. that is a lot of fun. As I think about it, though, my go to rod for pan fish and as a backup is an older garage sale Cabela's 4-5 wt. with a Medalist. That thing just keeps taking abuse.
