Default Re: Rod for the North East?

I normally use an 8wt rod with a 9 or 10wt line, but when the wind is howling I switch to a 10wt rod with 10wt full sink line to better power through the wind.
My fishing partner almost always stays with his 9wt rod, 9wt line, only going to a 10wt when the wind is above 20 knots
You don't necessarily need a big rod to land big fish. But you do need the heavy line to cast the big flies, especially in the wind
