first, welcome to the forum,
depending on your target species and target water, choices will vary.
but for a great all around line, i would highly recommend the fly lines that justin is offering at allen fly fishing.

I have that rod and if it to be used in situations that typically call for a 5 weight rod I think you'll find that rod likes lines that are true to weight... meaning there's no need to upline, down line or go with lines that are 1/2 weight heavy.
Sweet rod. It will tip cast sweetly up close and keep working down the blank for reaching out without folding.
