I have finaly decided to try fly fishing so I will add some of the links I find helpful here. My first outfit consists of a Tibor Back Country Wide reel with a 9 wt Scientific Anglers Wet Cell line and a TFO 9wt TiCr rod. The reel was purchased from Cabela's, the rod from Bass Pro Outdoor World in Dania and the line from the Fly Shop at 5130 N. Federal Hwy. (US1) in Ft. Lauderdale. Most of my fishing will be done in the surf which is the reason for the sinking line.
