Smallie , since it's only January you have plenty of time to build one , it's not as difficult as you think. If you can tie flies you can build a rod and you get much more bang for your buck. Most fly shops carry blanks and rod building supplies and they will help you get what you want. Along with the enjoyment of catching fish on a rod you made yourself , it's less expensive for a good name rod.

Jdaddy has good advice, get a decent beginner/intermediate set up. If you plan on doing a good amount of smallie and trout fishing on big water a 6wt would be great. It might not be the best with sz 24 midges but you never know.

Fredrick, as far as a 2nd rod goes, unless you plan on seeking muskies/using it for steel, i think an 8wt is a little overkill for smallies. just my opinion.
