Another thought. Now that that a new season is approaching. I would contact guides and see if they will sell you their last years models. Guides now are usually not as busy, could use the money, and some will for sure upgrade with a new year. You could pick up a big brand, high quailty rod and reel for a fraction of the price. Sure the rod and reel will some will have some wear and tear but inspect everything over really well, you could probably get them to throw in the backing and fly line as well. I would rather buy high quailty used w/ some wear, than something brand new that is cheap. Just something to ponder while your looking for a outfit.
