New to fly fishing

Hello all,

Doesn't look like there has been much activity on this forum of late so I'm not really sure what I can expect but I'll give it a shot anyway.

My son and I are interested in fly fishing and would like to give it an earnest try. We live in Southeast Michigan, near Ann Arbor, and have multiple lakes in which to fish as well as the Huron River. My guess is that we will be mainly fishing for pan fish and various types of bass which leads me to assume that a 5/6 weight rod will fulfill our needs. Please, correct me if I'm wrong. Because we are just getting into this we obviously don't want to drop a ton of money into gear but would like something durable, that we can grow into and have fun with.

I would love to hear your suggestions and recommendations because fly fishing is fascinating to us but we are coming from a spinning rod and reel world that is primitive when compared to fly fishing.

Thank you for your help.
