I am a new fly fisherman. I am an avid fisherman and tried fly fishing years ago with little success. I am giving it a try again and want to purchase the best gear for my money. I am considering a 6wt travel rod for my first outfit. I am considering the Cabelas 7 pc Stowaway combo with the Drake reel or the L.L. Bean Travel Series 6 pc rod with a Meriden reel. I would like to take the canoe back into some remote ponds so the travel rods are being considered. I would greatly appreciate any info and input from some experienced fisherman. Tell me what you think. If you think a 6wt line is my wrong choice or if I should stay with a 2 piece rod. Please tell me. If you like or dislike these two travel outfits, please tell me. Help me to get on the right trail. Tell me as you really think. I want to get it right this time.
