Hello. I've been interested in getting into fly fishing for a few years now, but have never had the time and resources to get into it. I'll finally have some spare time and a little spare cash to get setup now so I'm looking for a solid beginner rig. I plan on fishing ponds, creeks, rivers, lakes, and streams from Texas to Colorado. Not sure if that's too much to ask for one rod and I surely don't know what kind of fish exist. Can anyone offer advice to the beginner as far as equipement and shops? I'm looking to spend about $200 for rod/reel (if that's realistic). What other essentials do I need? I have a few places in town that I can get lessons from and a few bodies of water to practice on so I should be good there. Thanks!

Edit: I prefer a compact, packable system since I'll be doing alot of hiking to spots.
