: Any Suggestions?

I am just beginning to learn about fly fishing. I have a few questions. I will be fishing mainly inshore fish of the Gulf. I am about an hour North of Tampa. Should I get a 8 or 9 weight set. Also does anyone have any suggestions for a beginners combo for between $80-$130? I found an Cortland Quick Start Fly Outfit for $90 from Offshore Angler. It is an 8/9 weight. Any good. Does anyone have any opinions or comments about Cortland or Scientific Angler Fly Outfits? Also does anyone have a site or something for flies for inshore saltwater or flats fishing in Florida? Has anyone heard of "Flies4sale" out of Sarasota? Please someone answer these questions. I am very intrested in fly fishing and I want to learn anything I can. Also does anyone have a site where I can read some of the basics of fly fishing? Thanks

OH, and this forum is an excellent source!!! (see, i bet you guys thought i ws going to leave that out didn't you?!)
