Which line wieght?

I want to get started fly fishing and I am having trouble deciding which line weight I should choose. Since I am new to fly fishing I would like to make the most of my first fly rod. I live in RI and I do not want to fish for trout. I fish for bass but I would like to try fishing off coastal rocks or surf for bluefish or stripers.
so I was looking for a rod weight that could accomodate bluefish and freshwater bass, is this possible? I was told that a 9weight would work well for both bluefish and freshwater bass and small stripers. would a 9 weight be ok for largemouth and casting into theocean? Thanks for your help, I have a lot to learn
