To stay within your budget of $100-200 and still get everything you need Rod,Reel,Line,Backing I'd look long and hard at this set up: http://www.basspro.com/TFO-Professional-II-Rod-and-Hobbs-Creek-Reel-Fly-Outfits/product/11110505004913/310665#BVQAWidgetID pick up a few SA 10lb Bass Tapered leaders some 8-10lb tippet material and a handful of size 4,6,8 Poppers and Wooly Buggers and your good to go!
BTW, I'll probably catch flack for it by the "Big Fish" guru's but start out with a 8 1/2 to 9 foot 6wt rod. You'll learn to cast faster easier and not develop bad habits like you would with a heavier wt rod. A 6wt will handle 90% of largemouth bass you'll catch plus be Alot of fun catching bream on.

I've been looking for something like this as well. Glad I came across this post. Thanks
Anyone have any information/opinions on the Okuma Cascade reel? Was thinking about getting one and matching it up with a rod later...may just check out one of these complete outfits that you guys posted though.
