Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

Good morning, as partially explained in a brief bio posted to My Page, my fishing has consisted of cane pole with float, hook and worms. Have done a bit of fly fishing on several trips out West where I used a mid range trout set-up which consisted of a 8'6"  #5 rod with, I believe, a 6wt. floating line which needs the backing and line replaced (perhaps with a 4 wt. line). If bluegill fly fishing is added to my desire for trying a spinning rod and reel, do you guys think I have an adequate fly rod/reel set up?  Probably old for an occasional fisherman to get too invested in equipment. One more bit of advise ... I would appreciate suggestions re: a spinning rod and reel of the 'best for the money' type, plus recommended line- type and weight.

 More advise will, I assure you, be sought but, for now,  thank you for your current input!
