i was looking for my entry into fly fishing also early this spring and went with a Scott V2 which i happily abused 3-5 days a week for three months this summer. it needs a new grip as a chunk popped out but it's fine otherwise. the rods start at $165 and a cheap reel is something like $30-40, i think. a little over your budget, but lifetime warranty on the rod from a good manufacturer. Sage has the Launch series which is similarly priced and has faster action and a lifetime warranty. then i also saw a series of G.Loomis combos that ran in your budget range. it was kind of odd since i had never seen a Loomis rod that costs less than like $300. that was at Outdoorworld/Bass Pro Shops, btw. have fun!
