If you are willing to get a rod from a not so well know maker you can find something nice for not a lot of money. I just fulfilled a childhood dream of owning a bamboo fly rod for about a quatre of what Orvis would charge for the same rod. The rod I got was from Lee Orr of Vandalia Rodworks. (I'd post a link but they aren't a sponsor. You can find them through google or just add a dot com to their name without the space.) The price was great and the quality of the rod is good. No cheap fittings. They will make just about anything you want. You can even specify the taper you'd like.
