Hello everyone, I'm new here obviously and I'm sure this question gets asked frequently but, I'm a little overwhelmed with all the line choices there are so.. Thursday I picked up a switch rod, it's an 11ft 8wt. The blank is labeled med-fast action. I'm trying to decide on a line for it and I'm just having a giant brain fart when it comes to choosing something lol. Mainly I bought this rod for river bassing in the summer, but after sitting here looking at it.. I know for a fact that I'll be making a trip to NY to try my hand at steelheading. So yea, should I over load this with a 9wt to get the rod to load? Can I use a spey line on a switch rod? Or a skagit line for that matter? What you you guys recommend for a twohander newbie like myself.. besides the obvious choice of a switch line. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. PS: If you're wondering why a guy from PA would be posting on a WA fly-fishing site.. all the steel-heading sites that are east coast based seem to be loaded with bait fisherman really, plus nobody ever seems to be active on the east coast sites so.... yea.
