Fly rod for beginner

My 12 year old son has saved money to buy a fly rod ($100.00 give or take). Like most 12 year olds, he is easily taken in by marketing hype. Can anyone recommend how to choose a good fly rod for him? Specific rod/brand/dealer would be great, but I understand that some might be hesitant to do that. Anyway, he'll mostly be fishing small streams, raindow and brown trout....something around a 6 wt line. Any advice will be appreciated!!!
