switch rod size question
Hello, new poster here,I am getting ready to purchase a switch rod kit and and not positive about sizing compared to standard fly rod's etc...
I have been looking at a 10' 8" rainshadow switch rod( from JStockard), to be used primarily for salmon/ steelhead fishing also some light/medium saltwater...I thought an 8wt. would be a good choice, but after reading some other posts dont know which size matches up best...I have a 10' 6wt. TFO w/ butt that would be the next size down from what I want to make...I need something I can cast a bit further and able to handle some bigger fish... I will be rivermouth fishing while wading and also from boat...also what reel weight & line to match...
BTW....I looked at most of the companys above ...what a wealth of info and products!
thanks very much for any advice...t
