Posts: 6I'm willing to spend up to $300 on a rod and $300 on a reel.

I want a four-piece rod in 4 or 5 weight and an "older" design reel that you still have to use backing for instead of the newer design.

What companies or brands should I be looking at?

you should be looking at your local fly shop...that's their bread and butter and they're very good at it if you can describe what/where/for what you fish.
btw, welcome, and where are you?
