Our sponsor Rio Products provides a recommendation chart for matching lines to rods which includes their popular and effective Skagit lines. I would take a look on for starters.

I haven't had the pleasure of playing with that particular rod but have heard good reviews.

Another good source specifically Spey is run by Sean Ransom where you can find great product reviews written by Dana Sturn.
