Nice, Congrats!

I really know nothing about Reddinton rods. I have those Korker boots and I love them.

As for reels, I think that about anything that holds line is good. In fly fishing, you are the drag mostly, so the reel is up to you. I have friends who don't do the finger drag thing, so they get high end reels. I don't. It's a personal preference.

The important thing in fly fishing (IMO) is the rod, the line and the fly. Everything after that is a personal preference.

Enjoy!!

I have a reddington 3 wt. its really nice i love it. I have heard real good things about the konic. I almost picked one up but found a killer deal for a sage instead. sounds like a sweet setup though

The Konic is the best reel in its price range, Lamsons have great drag systems...

I have the pursuit in a 6wt, mainly for nymphing and tossing very large streamers. It is an absolutely fantastic rod, I love it. I say you got a killer deal, and I'm jealous because I had to pay for mine. Out of my 7 fly rods, I use the pursuit the most. I can't comment on the reel or boots because I have something different. But the rod is killer! Nice score
