Default Re: Rigging my rod/reel

On the reel -

I'd go with a larger reel than one made for #8 line myself. On my #8 I use a reel made to take #10 line, and I still can barely fit the line & backing on it. But then again I'm not familiar with the salmon in NY, you might not need as heavy or as much backing as I use. I like to put as much 30# backing on as I can as the Coho's and Chinooks run fast and hard and there are lots of sharp things for them to wrap the line around here . . .
