I'm a big fan of the Redington Classic Trout rod, and the Winston Passport - both of which are right around $100 and a pleasure to cast. They're not going to hit the far bank, but I find them quite fun to fish and I've landed any number of rainbows on each of them (in a 5 weight). Can't be beat at that price. Also. here's a pike I caught last week. First pike on the fly for me. Fooled him with a huge bunker pattern on my Echo 7#.
