Try a local shop. Temple fork and reddington are good lower priced brands. Albright tackle has low online pricing if you want to go that route, but you won't get any advice along with the sale.
If these are the rods your looking for you need to check out Colton Fly Rods, Bob (foulhook) has developed rods and reels beyond what these guys are offering at better prices. he often has bass barn specials were members of the board can get their hand on an outfit for even less than usual.Try a local shop.

Here is my suggestion do a google search for " Colton Fly ". You will get Bob Filger( foulhook). he also advertises on this site as " Anglers Edge marine".Call Bob, tell him way you want to do, and that you are a Barn Member. His rods are made in England I believe, and the reels are made in PA. He will fix you up with a quality rod reel, backing , and line. He'll even give you a fly or 2. You will be set up, with quality stuff, that will not break your budget, and he stands behind his equipment. If you are on a budget, the Albright A5 rod has a good write up on it but, my first choice would be Colton. I could not tell you about the Albright reels. If you are going to have 1 rod, I would get a 9foot 9weight.I'm looking to get my first fly rod and reel for my kayak. And i need some help.
I will be fishing in the bays and rivers and at times mouth of inlets and canals.
I'm not looking for the best fly rod out there i would love something reasonable price. Or if someone has one that they are willing to sell.
Well, give Bob a call. Sometimes he even has demos to sell.Ya Im going to shoot the guy an email tomorrow after school.
But Im going to have to wait on buying it until summer when i start working again.
Bob at Colton has rods and reels up on eBay right now at half price. Pop onto eBay and search on 'Colton' to see what he has and if it's what you're looking for. My first salt rod was an 8-weight with a multi-tip line.
I know I don't need another rod/reel but may buy one because the deals are so good. Love my Gen I reels.
the 9' 9wt is what you want. I would put a Teeny TS -350 sinking line ( or other comparable integrated sink tip line) on it. If you have the money get an extra spool and put an intermedate sink line on that. I fish the 350 95% of the time. split the last 5% between a floater and intermediate.So im going to go with a 9wt rod. That should be good for kayak/ fishing out front on my boat?.?.
