I'm looking for suggestions for a lightweight rod and reel set. Three parameters: (1) I don't have use for a fly rod; (2) I need decent line capacity as I'm casting on lakes, and (3) ideally, not too complicated to use so my little daughter could use it as well. Thanks in advance - what a great site!

http://www.daiwa.com/tackle/combos/esp/
is the URL to look at the Diawa travel packs designed to accomplish the goals that you stated. There are many retail outlets that handle these sets. The one that I would recommend is Cabelas and this items URL on their site is http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/links/link.jhtml?id=0004938114883a&type=product&cmCat=search&returnString=No=20&hasJS=true&Nty=1&Ntx=matchall&Ntt=pack+rod&N=4887&QueryText=pack+rod&noImage=0&_D%3AhasJS=+&_DARGS=%2Fcabelas%2Fen%2Fcommon%2Fsearch%2Fsearch-box.jhtml.22&Ntk=Products&returnPage=search-results1.jhtml for $59.95. Just leave the hard case in the car and you have an ideal solution. I have used mine for many years without any problems.
