Default Fly line, leader and tippet for inshore

Hi guys,
I am relatively new to fly fishing and completely new to saltwater "fly" fishing (but not fishing). I have a St. Croix 9wt that I guess would suffice for redfish, speckled trout, flounder, etc. The only question is the rest. I have an okuma slv reel on it, not sure if it can be used in the salt, and just a regular weight forward 9wt line (do I need "redfish line"?). As for which leader and tippet I am clueless! Should I just use a stout furled leader with some 14 mono as tippet? Also, will the reel hold up in the salt?
Thanks!
Matt
