    Sorry, need more information on just what you're trying to catch.
    All those parameters you mentioned vary greatly depending upon which gamefish you're fly-casting to.
    On the whole, I'd rather be in Wyoming . . .

    With an 8wt you're gonna want to start with a butt section of 30-40 #test
