When you say your limit is $140, is that just for the rod and reel?

Redington and Cabelas are good places to start, though I'm always a bit anti-megahugestores so I wouldn't get the Cabelas rod even though there stuff is great quality. I highly recommend you look at a St Croix setup. Cortland also has some great entry level setups.

For panfish and bass, I'd get a 9 ft 6 wt rod. That will still make the panfish fun, but have enough backbone to cast larger bass flies.
