    Hey there. I'm thinking about moving away from spin fishing for a while and try my luck for trout with a fly rod. Anyone know of a good rod reel combo that isn't expensive but is still sturdy. Also, what weight should I get. I will be fishing for all kinds of trout, some up to 25 inches and down to 10 inches. 5 or 6 weight? Thanks.

    When I first started i used a Cabelas Genesis 4 weight, but I think a 5 weight would be better for the larger trout and bigger water. The whole thing (rod, reel, line, backing, flies, box, leader, case, etc.) cost about $150.

      5 weight sounds about on par. I would suggest cabela's as well. They have a pretty good selection on rod and reel combos, great customer service, and can probably accomadate your price range.
