    Welcome to the forum. It might help us to know what you plan to fish for with this rod.

    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.
