    Spinners like roostertails, mepp's aglia, and blue fox vibrax are probably the best bet, because it sounds like you're not really experienced (no offense). It's hard to keep fish from not hitting...

    Good idea. I saw a couple fly rods in the "bargain cave" last time I was at Cabela's, but nothing less than 6 - 7 wt. and under 8'6". Will keep my eye out in the future for one though.
