LECIE 13,7 #9/10. What flylines?

Hi guys first post for me as im a total noob with twohanded rods

Ahh the salmon is rising in the river not far from me.. they caught a 26+ kg a few days ago.. i couldnt stand it, and went and bought my first two handed rod.
Picked a 3 peice Guideline Lecie 13 fot #9/10.
I was also told that the rod is best with 33-35gram lines.

Havent decided on what reel to use, but ive been searching the used market without any luck. In worst case ill buy a new one and then ill pick the Danielsson FW 8Twelve.

About flylines. Since we dont usually got a lot of room behind us here in sweden, im forced to use Scandinavian casting style over Spey (wich i find beautiful) so im woundering about how to think when picking flyline setup for this.

Where im going to fish the water is regulated and some days theres very little water and sometimes enormous amounts!
Usually from 100 - 550 m3/sec, so i guess i need a few lines to cover the fishing there.

Anyone want to suggest what lines to use and what to buy to fill the needs for this kind of fishing.
Im really bad at these things as im a newbie with twohanded fishing and its gear.

Big thanx //Bazz

This is not like 100% sure thing, but i have same rod, mf-function, and i fish in Finland.

That kind of situations, i have used shooting head`s in two sizes.

When you have a little bit more room, you can use shooting heads little bit longer, like between 12 - 13,5 m. or rm-speyline ( guidelines ) and they can be 9/10 class lines and about 34 - 38 grams ( i use 35 - 38 grams ).

When you have a little room behind of you, you can use shooting heads of 10,5 - 11,5 m. and they can be about the same grams, 34 - 37 gr ( 37 gr is bit heavy, but it depends of your casting style ) and some of my:n 32 - 33 grams feels to be too light ) so i use 34 - 37 grams.

I hope this help you a little bit
