Default Re: Newby to forum, looking for brackish water set up

If you go with the 8wt and the Okuma reel that fq13 mentions, I'd go up a size. I use an 8/9 on my 8wt rod. I had a 7/8 and it just didn't hold enough backing for my purposes. Too much backing always is better than too little. There was no price difference when I went to the larger reel, either.
