Well my suggestion would be a 9 foot 5 weight as an all round rod, something you could fish dryfly or hammer out a big weighted Zonker if need be. I would spend the bulk of the money on a good rod and line, the reel can be a cheap one with a clicker drag. You may want to try the classified ads on some of the forums or an online auction house like Ebay(I bought an Orvis trident TLS for $100 last week). You may want to check out your local flyshops as some take trades or sell on consignment.
