To Moose's point, we can't assume that Jeff is gonna buy his gear and then just try to learn on his vacation. If he's fishing Baxter State Park in Maine, then I assume this will be brook trout fishing and may still be a few months away. That's plenty of time to get outfitted, practice, and maybe even get a lesson or two so that he's not entirely green on his trip.
Whatever outfit you choose, let us know how it works out for you. Good luck.
