I have no doubts I'll catch some small fish- at least at first!!! I thought about 8 wt; I'm concerned that I'll be a little undergunned when surf fishing with the wind- which is probably how I'll be fishing most of the time. I want the rod to have some punch for beach and jetty fishing. I'll ask around I'll see if I can get some local advice and see what most guys are using. For trout fishing I use both an 8.6' 4 wt and a 9' 5 wt, depending on the size of stream I'm on. Maybe I'll do the same for the saltwater if I get real into it; an 8 wt for flats and quieter backwaters.
