8wt perfect. white & black maribou muddlers will be hammered by Big bows and dollies and you will have a bent 8wt
if you can remember, i'd like to know how you do on the silvers. I had a tough time hooking them on flies on the upper kenai, if that's where ur goin. Hooked 2, my first day out and 1 of them broke the hook. it was a hot fish but maybe i struck a rock on a backcast before i hooked it. never hooked another silver for 2 1/2 months of fishing and i was fishing 3 days a week sometimes 4. unbelieveable. I went into my log cabin for winter and hung up my vest and thought man, how could this be. I tried everything.
