I think a 9 ft 10 wt with a nice saltwater reel and tropical fly line could potentionally handle these but I am not sure.
A 10 will Handle all of those except for larger tarpon and tuna.
But you'll need a coldwater line, and something for tropical climes.
Something like a "saltwater" line from Rio or SA will handle all fairly well, but its a compromise between 40-60 degree water and 80. You might be better served with a 400 grain teeny type line and a tropical line.
