What type reel, line?

Howdy all, I'm new here, this is the first post.
I've done a little flyfishing over the years but have never gotten serious about it. I own two fly rods but no reel, line, leader.....just getting started.
The one rod is a Fenwick glass rod my Dad,(now deceased), owned in the early '70s. It is an 8', line wt 6. The second rod I recently traded for. It is an Orvis 9', line wt 5, TLS, "tip flex" model. The Fenwick is a much more limber or slower rod than the Orvis.
About all of my fishing is done here in rivers & lakes of Wyoming for trout. What recomendtions do you folks have for a reel & line? There's a great variety in tapers and price. I've always thought of a fly reel as a cheap, simple unit to hold line but I see now that it is easy to pay $100 for one. Thanks in advance for your advise.
