Buying gear off ebay?


I am looking to get my daughter outfitted, but I do not know if she will enjoy the sport as much as I do, so I was going to get something less expensive. I found some stuff on ebay, and there were a couple of pretty cool packages:

Package 1

package 2

The first one looked a lot more comprehensive, but I wanted to check if anyone esle had any experience buying gear off the web? Off Ebay?

Buying from ebay is fine if you realy know what are you looking for and are an experienced fly fisherman. Otherwise, you are far better off buying from a local fly shop since the local shop will have the knowledge to help you make the best selection for your needs and help you learn how to use it properly as well.

Remember, fly shops carry equipment from inexpensive to high end. And your local shop ought to be able to get an outfit together for you for around $200.00-$250.00. The shop also wants your repeat business so they will do what they can to provide you with what you need and are looking for.
