Salt Water Outfit


Welcome to the club. Before going out and plunking down a bunch of cash, take a look on Ebay. I have had remarkable success finding reels, lines, and rods there, and have saved mucho $$$. I recommend frequenting fly shops and buying from them once you're "hooked" and upgrade to finer equipment, as the personal service and other benefits from such a purchase are priceless. But, for a starter outfit, and one you could use as a backup or loaner to introduce friends to saltwater flyfishing, go to ebay and look into thge flyfishing section. I've seen Sage rods for <$100.00 and reels can be had for the same price.

Good luck.
