Welcome to the world of fly fishing junkies!
You are on the fun and often costly rod acquisition stage that so many of us with understanding partners and a spare closet in the house have journeyed.
Lucky you on the quest for the 8wt, best advise I can supply is budget for two rods and explore the 7wt rods out there at the same time. If like me, you are going to find the seven will see three times the use of your eight because you can still enjoy it in the skinny stuff and with care it will do steelhead and salmon depending on current. That being said my biggest fish landed was an Anchor River Steelhead on a Sage 10 foot 8wt. The perfect rod for the time.
Get them both!
