So I'm in the market for my first fly fishing outfit and I'm looking at a redington pursuit. From everything I've read it is a solid combo for a good price. I'd probably get a six or eight wt to be used in and around anchorage but also on bigger water. The whole shebang costs about 180. However, I was in a pawn shop yesterday and there was an eight wt "field & stream" rod/reel all set up for 75 bucks, which seems like a pretty good deal... Anyone have any experience with this brand/rod?
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
