I've got my first salmon fishing trip planned this fall so I'm looking to buy a rod and reel. Would prefer a 9wt but the right 8wt would also work. No spey rods/reels. My budget for the whole setup is about $500 so if you've got a rod, reel, or a whole setup you are looking to unload, let me know. Some of the reels that have caught my eye are Galvan Torque series, Orvis Mirage or Hydros series, Ross Momentum or Evolution series, Lamson Litespeed or Velocity series. Too many potential rods to list... Paypal is a must...unless you are willing to ship to me first and trust me to make payment, which I would be willing to overnight.
