Almost ready to start fishing!

Hey again guys. Sorry for all the repetitive noob posts. I got a rod and reel today! While not the best set up in the world , I came across an old Martin rod and reel. The rod is 8' and is a 7 wt. I don't know much about the reel, other than it's all metal and has no plastic. It's in great condition, just needs some new line. So here's my question. I have no idea what to do as far as line/leader/ other tackle goes. Give me some pretty specific examples of line that I could use for smallmouth bass, bream, and trout. Will I need backing line? Also what kind of leader works well? And finally, what are your reccomendations for some good versatile flies? Thanks for the help.
