I have always wanted to fly fish growing up in Georgia and spending my summers in the NC mountains visiting family, however no one I knew fly fished and we always considered it the rich man's way to trout fish. Now I have moved to a fishing mecca of sorts and would love to get into fly fishing (which I no longer consider a rich man's style of fishing).
I will say that I was scared off when I went into Mountain View Sports to price check. At the moment I had a $200 budget and they had nothing in my price range. I had seen a kit at walmart for like $50 so I figured that a $200 budget should be fine. Get me into a mid range or good set up. I had no idea of the cost. Unfortunately I only had time to hit Mountain View Sports and didn't get to go to any of the other places in town in my five hours in Anchorage.
What would you guys recommend that I look for? I will be fishing in the Dillingham area. Anything I can access from DLG with a boat or car. Char, trout, grayling, dollies, Kings would be my main targets.
I know nothing, but would like to stay around my $200 budget. Is that doable? One rod? Maybe a couple of different rods and one reel? Please help.
