if your gl water is similar to ours then you are definitly on the right track. if you tend to need to make casts over 70 ft i might go heavier or if you need a lot of weight to get down to the fish. otherwise a 13' 8 wt would be a pretty middle of the road choice. i personally would stay away from the okuma reel they are pretty cheaply made and not too durable, although the price is probably right. the tetons are nice and you may want to look at J ryall reels as well or even a ross cimarron #5 for a dependable inexpensive reel that will hold a spey line. good luck, you will find all the info you need to make a good decisicion right here.
