There are several rods that would work in that price range. TFO. ECHO, Redington, St. Croix, and Lamiglass all have rods that fit your criteria. One of the best values is the Redington RedFly combo that comes complete with rod, reel, line, and backing. All these rod manufacturers have good casting rods for under $100.00.
Although from your description of what he will be using it for, I'd be more inclined to look at getting a 5 wt, unless he is also going to use the rod for bass fishing.

|juro||Is this just a rod or an outfit (reel line etc)?|

|Mtn Cat||Very little....and only on a cheap Wal-Mart rod. So, basically...no.|

Fly rod for beginner
My 12 year old son has saved money to buy a fly rod ($100.00 give or take). Like most 12 year olds, he is easily taken in by marketing hype. Can anyone recommend how to choose a good fly rod for him? Specific rod/brand/dealer would be great, but I understand that some might be hesitant to do that. Anyway, he'll mostly be fishing small streams, raindow and brown trout....something around a 6 wt line. Any advice will be appreciated!!!
