Like Peter said, you should look into a 14' 9 wt for your first rod, especially since you have the very real possiblity of hooking a rather large salmon where you are going to fish the rod.
The only thing you didn't tell us is the type of rod action you like. There are 2-hand rods with stiff, powerful, fast recovery, moderatley stiff, powerful, fast recovery, moderately stiff, somewhat powerful, slow recovery, soft, powerful, medium recovery, and soft, low power, slow recovery actions, just like with single hand rods. For us to give you a good recommendation that fits your casting style and preferred rod action, we need to know either the type of rods you like to cast, or the rod action you like.
to give you a better idea of what I'm talking about here are two examples: 1) the T&T 1409 or 1410 are stiff, powerful, fast recovery rods that are ill-suited to someone who likes a slower rod with moderate stiffness and power; 2) the old Sage 9140 brownie is a soft, low power, slow recovery rod that is ill-suited to a person who likes stiff, fast rods.
Perhaps contact Robert Meiser (one of our sponsors) who is one of the finest custom rod builders and a person who has developed his own rod blanks and tapers. Meiser has rods of several different actions in the 14' 9wt size and a few emails, private messages, or a phone call could get you a rod you would be happy with for many years.
