So i have 0 idea about salmon fishing. Aside from 1 pike trip in canada and catch and release bass in my friends pond (his parents have a bass infested pond on their 80 acres) I have only ever been trout fishing. For both bass and pike, i used other peoples gear. So i need help. It needs to be cheap, not because i am a cheapskate, but i am only 20, getting married, working part time, and my (soon to be) wife is attending her final year at Western Oregon University. So money is a little tight. I only need it to last a year or two, then i would be able to upgrade to better stuff. I just want something that will help me get introduced to salmon fishing. Under 100 for rod and reel is a must (together, not each).
