Hello I am sure a million people come on these forums looking for advice so here I am. I have fished my whole life but just getting into fly fishing with my 2 high school aged sons. We did an Orvis class and we all really enjoyed it. We would like to do some freshwater stream and pond fishing and we live close to the ocean where we can catch stripers and blue fish. I am struggling with what we should buy. Some folks say todays rods and reels are all great compared to years ago and just get something to get started. Others say buy the best you can afford. I can afford upper end equipment but want to be smart about spending money on something thats new. we also were told that you can't really use the same set up for streams and saltwater that is another issue if we want to do both kinds times 3 people. Really looking for some guidance in what to buy. Should we buy used but quality? if so where do you find quality used? or do we just buy the 9 foot rod with the 5-7 wt that we can maybe catch all the fresh water and some small school bass? Lots of decisions and excited to start. Any help here would really help.
