Okay with $ in mind what would you buy? I'm looking to stay well below $400 for rod line and reel. I've been told that an 8wt is the way to go. I own a 6wt and I've been told it's too light for steelhead flies. I just bought a very nice reel for the 6 and I love it. Thanks to Seth at creekside. I'm not looking for an outfit I have to upgrade later. I want this to last. I'm hoping to use this new setup here and on the Descutes. Fire away with suggestions and ideas.
