    Build your own rod! For the cost of L.A. Garcia's book, a decent set of rod blanks/cork grip/anodized reel seat/thread/guides, you'll have a better-than-average rod in about one day.
    If you can tie flies, you can easily build a rod. Hell, if you can tie your shoes, you can build a rod. It's hugely satisfying.
    If you buy, Beware Redington. My four-piece 9-footer (saltwater rod) broke so often I knew the customer service staff by name. Maybe they've found a new blank-maker, but I'd prefer the St. Croix. I've fished an 8-weight for 15 years, up to 50 days a year and it just keeps on keeping on.

    I very good rod is the St. Croix Imperial. I think they run around $150 and perform like a $500 rod. Reddington Rods are also very good and less expensive. If you are buying a reel for steelhead I would suggest buying a reel with a good drag. I have always fished my 6 wgt for bass and steelhead. My 8 weight with the larger reel are just so much heavier it wears my casting arm out too quick.
