    Sean,
    As far a rod; cast a few. Most fly shops will allow you to sample cast them. Find one that you feel comfortable with. The rod is an extension of you, what feels like a great casting rod for some may not be right for others. You should be able to get a decent rod for under $275. The reel is the least important for trout fishing. ( Salmon, steelhead and Ocean fishing you would need a quality drag on the reel) ) a $20 dollar reel holds the line just as well a $1000 dollar reel. I would suggest a 5 or 6 weight outfit. (Best all around weight class.) For a line get a floating weight forward line.
