    Get onto either flylife or saltwater fly fishing forums and buy yourself either a 5wt for regular estaury fish or a 7/8wt for the bigger ones (Jacks, Barra, Threadies etc.)

    For your situation starting out I'd just get a cheap fly reel and reasonable 2nd hand rod and a top quality fly line.

    Head over to my website and look for posts made by 'ward'. He is president of North Queensland Fly Fishers here in Townsville. He fishes nothing but fly for anything from tarpon and sooties in the fresh to spanish mackerel and fingermak in salt. And I can reccoment going along to a few of the club meetings. A great bunch of guys with an amazing wealth of knowledge!
