Default Saltwater reel

Hi - what is generally used for fly reels in SW fishing? All my stuff is FW at present, but I'd like to get into SW fishing this season.

I assume rods matter very little, just need a good rinsing in FW after use?

Reels though.....do people generally use SW specific reels, or just rinse out a FW reel? I have no idea. If so, any particular recommendation for a fairly reasonable SW reel for an 8 weight?

Thanks!

OH - and I have no intention of fishing for tuna or something offshore on a boat. This would be flats and "surf" fishing I guess you'd call it. Blues, bonefish, redfish, sea trout, etc.
