fly size to line size
 
What are the preferred fly sizes as to rod wt.? I have purchased a new 9 wt. rod and reel. Also have my beginners 5/6 wt. What size flys should I be looking at?

Depends on what you're fishing for. And where you're fishing.

I have the same question...? I just paired up a 5wt rod and reel. I'm thinking I should have went with a 7wt for largemouth bass, but I am an opportunist, and I got some really good deals. Anyway, I'm using it for bass until I get that 7. It's a Loomis GL4, any suggestions on fly size or pattern?
