What's your budget for a line? What rod are you matching it with? How big is the water you're fishing; I get that it's "fast," but how far out are you casting?
That's a good catch. They make both a single hand and 2 hand version labeled with Steelhead/Salmon. You want the 90 foot line, not the 140.
