Are you looking for single hand or two hand? I can put together a very nice package for you for a single hand rod, reel, and line. Would be asking $300 for a Scott 8'8" G885/3, an Allen trout 3/4 with a WF5F line. PM me if any interest.

What's his limit? For $225, I'll send a good 7'9" Orvis Far and Fine 5wt with the same reel and line.

Cabelas and Field and Stream have package outfits for $150 or less.

Kevin, take this for what it’s worth, but you can get a new okuma slv590-4 on Amazon.com for less than $70, and even get prime2 day delivery on it. This was still my favorite SH 5wt up until I finally found true love in a blank that cost 5 or 6 times that. Guides I have given it to have said they liked it and expressed surprise that it was not even a mid-price rod. I think it would be an awesome rod for a beginner. Similar things can be said for some of the cabelas rods. And you certainly can find a decent reel to keep the whole package significantly less than $150.

I learned a long time ago to renormalize most suggestions given here - we have expensive tastes!

hey Kevin--I'm a frugal fly angler on an artist's budget, married too. So I always buy on the low end. If you can handle the super soft action, check out the Eagle Claw Featherlight 5/6w rods. Bright yellow and every trout feels like a big one--I love mine for small stream fishing! $25 at wally mart. you'd have to order it online--but I like my LL Bean Pocket Water click/pawl reel for $90. Now you're at $115 plus your line and flies.
