I agree with Flytyer regarding a 9' 6wt.
My recommendation is that you save a little longer and buy a TFO TiCr 9' 6 wt for your rod. These rods are about $250, come with a lifetime warranty, have fit and finish of any top of the line rod on the market, and have an incredible action. I wish I had cast them before I spent thousands on my Sages!
The dealer with the greatest customer service I have found is the Red Shed Fly Shop (www.redshedflyshop.com). Mike sells TFO's and can help you get set up with a matching outfit. His shop is no BS and his recommendations are solid and as I mentioned his service is the best in the business.
So, my recommnendation, spend a little more money now and you'll be happier in the long run.
