Default Old reel - new era question

Hello Everyone,

Iím a new member with some questions about reels and lines.

My son asked about branching out into something different for our next summer fishing trips. Our fishing really has been almost exclusively spinning for smallmouth bass in Northern Maine.

So I dusted off or rather uncovered my Pflueger 1494 Medalist that I purchased in Greenville, Maine in 1977. I tried to get info on-line about this reel but was not successful. As I am certain things have improved over the last 30+ years here are my questions.

Will this reel be able to be used with a WF-8 line? Or will I need to invest in a newer reel? Iím wondering if the current fly lines will be able to be used with this reel.

Thanks in advance for everyoneís help.
