Olkeller, Good to have you on the Forum!
A guy can get set up these days with a very good system for a very reasonable price. As we have discussed here before, a first step might be a visit to your local Flyshop. They will always have "Demo" equipment that a guy can tryout so you can get a feel for the system you might want to use. And while your there you can ask questions about Lines, Flys for your local area, Spots that you might visit, etc.
Another good thing is on-line shoping. Just punch in flyfishing equipment on your favorite search engine to get dialed in.
Hope this helps
