Re: New outfit set-up...
Okay. I did not realize that you were giving your 6 weight to your sister. I only recommended the 8 weight because of the 6 weight. Go ahead and get the 7 weight.
If you plan on lobbing super hairy or leathery 2/0 flies get a Rio Outbound Short floating line. It throws those types of flies more efficiently than the Clouser line.
