Just realized that I posted the wrong amazon link, I ended up buying this.

I just got into fly fishing this spring/summer as well; N.E. Iowa trout streams for me. Most of the information that I found encouraged buying a kit from fly fishing companies such as st. croix or reddington. Most of these companies have starting rod/reel kits around $150. 5 weight rods are considered to be the best all around rods, but depending on what type of fish you will be targeting it might be worth considering something different. Personally, I just didn't have $150 that I felt comfortable dropping on a hobby that I might not like. Also, there are the other costs such as buying tippet and leader materials, flies, maybe a net, etc. With that in mind I found a Pflueger fly kit with almost everything I needed. While it might not be as high of quality as a reddington/st croix, for $40 it has been a great introduction to fly fishing for me.
