That is what I did. There are several very dealers that offer Introductory outfits for around $100 or less. I bought mine "to try", I can see myself upgrading later if I like it. Also, my wife enjoys flyfishing but wants to stay very simple. Heading back to Wyoming in 2014 to camphost for the USFS, I can see her really getting into tenkara. Following the threads here and other sites, you can get involved with little capitol.
