Default 8W Fly Fishing combo

Hi,
Can anyone reccomend a semi decent 8W Fly Fishing combo for under $250.
Any input is appreciated. I would like it to include Rod , Reel, Backing and wieght foward line. I have fly fished quite a bit but can't spend a pile on this as my wife says my outdoor hobbys are to expensive.
Thanks, JEHL75

I have that amundson combo that has worked fine for me on the coast but I find a bit to heavy for the streams but it's a good price on a fine combo set up.

Check out a combo by Temple Fork Outfitters, I bought one 5 years ago for pike, I love the rod, the reel is very decent, I upgraded the line this year. They are under 250$.

x2 on the TFO; even a hopless amature fly chucker like myself can cast a big streamer with it

cheers

I like the Reddington, the Echo and the TFO for that price point.
