First flyfishing rod

I've fly casted in the past using friends' rods, but am interested in purchasing my own. My main question is what weight rod/line to purchase. I would mainly be surf fishing off the jersey shore. (I'm thinking that in the future, I might fish in large lakes, but for now it's just the ocean). Most of the people I ask seem to recommend a 9 weight rod with 9wt line. Is this a wise choice, or should I go with an 8?

My other ques is regarding the LL Bean StreamLite rods...I have a gift cert. for LL BEan, and was wondering if this series worth it's price - it retails there for about $220 for an outfit (including rod, reel, line, backing, and case).

Thanks a million for your advice!

Joe
