    Hook & Hackle has some kits on sale right now. You can choose with or without glues. They have a 2 pc. 2wt. kit for around $60 with the glues.

    Perhaps if you defined "really cheap" we could advise you.

    There are lots of sources of rod blanks. By doing a search you can find them in many price ranges. The choice will depend how much you want to spend.

    Unless you are experienced, a 2-3 weight is a tad light for a general purpose rod. A 6 weight might be more appropriate for your Dad.

    sorry, let me clarify. My first rod is just my practice rod that i will keep, and I thought a 2 or 3 weight would be fun to have. My dad's rod is going to be a 8'6" 5 weight. thanks again.
