There are a couple of places that you might want to check out. The Orvis Shop in Buckhead is probibly the best of the bunch, but you are limited to Orvis products only. The Orvis shop also has casting lessons and classes on flyfishing for beginners like your self. If you try the Orvis Shop ask for Titch White, he is the flyfishing expert and can outfit you for ypu needs.
You can also try the Fish Hawk in Buckhead, They carry several differnt lines of rods in all different price ranges. The other two places that I know of or have been to are is Bass Pro Shop Warehouse in Duluth and Atlanta Flyfishing Outfitters in Dunwoody.
I am partial to the Orvis Shop because the have one of the best warrantys in the market, They not only replace the products, but the will replace it at the store if they have it in stock. That means you do not have to mail it out and wait for it to come back.
If you have any other questions e-mail me at Flyguy2@juno.com and I will do my best to try and help you. Also drop me a line and let me know what you went with and how your flyfishing experience is going.
