Shopping for Dad

My dad is an avid spinning reel trout fisherman. My mother and I have decided to purchase him a fly rod this summer. I am leaning toward a Cabella 5 piece stow-and-go 8'5" mid-flex graphite 5 weight rod. This is offered in a combination with a Cahill II model number 1 reel. My father is 6'4" and about 220. I am going to purchase Orvis weight forward, 5 weight wonderline. He will be fishing mostly for trout in streams so 20 inches is a monster. Is this a good start? Are there any other combos you would recommend? Is this a good line?
