I was so stoked with the performance of my BII-MX #5 rod for nymphing, I bought a #7 and a #9 for
heavier nymphing and some saltwater fishing.
I have a Mastery Bonefish WF7F and a Rio Saltwater WF7I for the #7 – I assume they will be a good match. What line do you guys recommend for the #9 – would a Rio Grande WF9F be ok (even in the salt?) as I have one in the cupboard. I use a SA GPX on the #5 and it goes quite well (it also went great with a Hardy Marksman DT5F), so maybe a #9 GPX could be the go.
Where I fish, in Sydney Australia, I don’t think I need the tropical type lines as it’s quite temperate, even in Summer.
Can’t wait to begin my saltwater flyfishing – should be a great learning curve.
