Advise on a rod/reel set up please

Ok my buddy has been hounding me to get into this great sport. Fish mostly NY Catskill area waters. My budget is 250-350 totalling everything I need (if possible). He is telling me to get an Orvis set up, I can NOT afford it. What else do you recommend? I dont want to have to upgrade in a few years. I want something that will work and last but not no cheap set up either. I want a 8'6 5 weight from what he is telling me. Please provide me with specific rods/reels that are good from your expertise. Just a rod brand wont help me. Thanks.
