NateSmith That is a good choice for 100-150.00 but not a great set up over all. I would got up a notch or so. I think cabelas sells the reddington RS2 with a drake reel. Or maybe one of the starter Sages. It is a big step in performancefor not a ton more $$$. I would also go with a cheaper line like the Cortland 444SL it will save you 20 bucks and the difference is not that much.

Shopping for Dad

My dad is an avid spinning reel trout fisherman. My mother and I have decided to purchase him a fly rod this summer. I am leaning toward a Cabella 5 piece stow-and-go 8'5" mid-flex graphite 5 weight rod. This is offered in a combination with a Cahill II model number 1 reel. My father is 6'4" and about 220. I am going to purchase Orvis weight forward, 5 weight wonderline. He will be fishing mostly for trout in streams so 20 inches is a monster. Is this a good start? Are there any other combos you would recommend? Is this a good line?
