The Wind River combo is a solid starter setup under 100. Depends on what you're looking to fish, but a 5 weight is a pretty common starter setup.

These sales are perfect for beginners. I would recommend a 5 wt. The reels listed should serve you well. Even the $30 one is aluminum (although cast as opposed to machined). Other startup expenses will include line, backing, waders, boots, and of course flies. Good luck!


Ps...this deal coincides with the Cabelas gift card deal on eBay ($100 for $85).

If you can spend a little more (I spent $150), Cabelas has great bundles. Comes with everything short of flies. They used to be hard to find, I used a catalo to find the sub $200 ones when I looked. Here's an example, but not sub $200:

Fly Rods require a bit more precision than your standard rod. The rod is doing a lot more work in flyfishing.

Though it's a really great time for buying fly rods. Good fly rods used to cost upwards of $500 a decade or two ago. Now you can get really good fly rods for under $300.

Seconded. If ya wanna play, you gotta pay. The rod and the fly line itself are the major components, followed by the reel.

Fly fishing is very special, and the connection you get is unmatched from other methods of fishing. It is the exact opposite of soaking bait. I fly fish in salt water, and there are times when fish are feeding on very small baitfish, like small glass minnows, where other types of lures and bait just won't work. But if you can present a lilttle fly that mimics that bait, it's fish on brother. A super cool benefit is that you can present the lure to the fish, and if you miss, or if the fish moves, you just lift the line off the water, and lay it back down a few feet over, in one motion, instead of reeling your lure all the way in, recasting, accompanied with a loud fish scaring plunk.

I think it's twice as fun to fight a snook or redfish on fly than spinning. You can think of fly fishing to golf and baitcasting to bowling, a little more mental and finesse.

Thanks for the input guys I appreciate it as I don't know much about fly fishing besides that it looks like a basic fishing pole toned down slightly.

I still don't understand why the rod's are so expensive, they appear slightly simpler but still not a true traditional rod.

Why not just use a traditional rod like what the natives used? Just stick and string with no reel/spool or other accessories?

I can definitely understand the need to use them in shallower water, I wonder how well they would fair for catching medium to large sized sized salt water fish and sharks such as skate and sand sharks at dusk/night.

I love night fishing.

Part about traditional rod, stick and string is still used although much more refined, it's called Tenkara. Great option in small streams. Custom built bamboo fly rods are even more expensive than standard fly rod, usually around $2k but they are work of art if done right. Fly fishing is just very expensive, good pair of waders $300-$500 with really good ones around $800 or so, carbon fiber fly net from $125 and on and on. If you ever take good fly rod in one hand and regular casting rod in another you will know why they are more expensive. 9' - 5 type is under 3 oz now.

you're better off with traditional gear for night fishing. though you probably could snag some rays or sharks fly fishing at night. though, I probably wouldn't want to fly fish at night regardless. fly fishing is definitely an art form and requires finesse. I like the golf/bowling analogy earlier. fly fishing is multifaceted as far as skills too. there's casting/mending, tactics for 'stripping' (retrieving) the line and hooksets, as well as tying the flies you'll use to catch the fish. it's pretty full circle when it comes down to an ultimate fishing experiences. think about it... most people generally don't tie or make their own lures for conventional fishing. what better satisfaction catching a fish on something you tied yourself?! on top of that, using lures and flies over dead or live bait is also another skill that requires finesse and technique. there's just a lot more that goes into fly fishing that makes catching fish all the more satisfying. but it does tend to cost more but I would argue that you can get started on a pretty decent setup for not as much as you'd think nowadays. as with most fishing gear in general, you get what you pay for. but fly fishing tackle can start adding up over time and as you really get into it. again, if it wouldn't be that different than getting into buying higher-end spinning, casting or conventional gear
