I did a search for a beginner flyfishing setup, but there are so many threads it could take a long time to find the information I need. So sorry if this is something y'all have addressed many times.
My wife and daughter want to get me a flyfishing setup for my birthday. I'm a lucky man! I probably need to keep the rod somewhere in the $100-150 range, and I will get a reel on my own. So what I'm asking is what sort of a flyrod would be good to direct my family toward? I plan on fishing rainbows and salmon when I get the chance. I"m thinking of something between a 6 and 8 wt. Any reason one rod can't work for both rainbows and salmon? Am I better off getting a dedicated salmon rod or rainbow rod, and picking up the other when I have saved up some more money?
