I saw an Okuma fly reel for the first time the other day. It looks like a really decent reel, very low priced, about $80.00 for a reel for an 8-9 wieght. Have several friends that use their trolling reels and love them. It will get you in on the very low end and if you really take care of it may last a few seasons. Bought my nephew a Temple forks rod for Xmas and he caught his first bonefish on it. Nice rod for the price.

My .02 ......Temple Fork, for the $ makes a good rod. re Reddington reel...that was my initial real...all I can say is that I took great care of it and in 2 years I sent it back to the factory 3 times for repeated drag failure. Listen to cheap and you will buy minimum buy the Tioga (about $140)....durable and for the $, in my opinion, can't be beat.
