Default Noob to Switch: Need Help

Ok, so last night I pulled the trigger on a switch rod. I got a Redington CPX 7wt switch. I plan on putting my old Teton Tioga 10LA on it.

I'd like to use it primarily for Steelhead to swing flies at low light and nymph the primary portion of the day. So I guess I'll primarily be using it to nymph. I know absolutely nothing about setup so what do I need to get as far as lines?

But I'd also like to use it in the summer for smallies, carp, etc.

I've heard good things about Rio's Skagit short line. Would this allow me to add sinking and floating tips?

What about shooting lines? Please tell me exactly what I'll need to buy from backing up.

thanks.
