Starting Fly Fishing

Hi I am just new to the whole world of fishing, I am a senior in college and learned that the best drug for relaxation is fishing. I live in the Black Hills of South Dakota and have some really nice trout fishing streams and lakes, and found out that it is not much fun to sit with a bobber all day. My question is, that I just recently purchased a Scientific Anglers fly rod combo at the local Walmart. It was marked down from $100 to $40 so I could not resist (college student). Anyways the weight of the rod is 8/9 and it is 9'. Is this too big to be using for trout? And any suggestions on what type of line? leaders? and flies work best. Thank you for your time!!
