An Airflo 540 Compact Skagit would work well on that rod. If you want SA get the the Skagit 550.
For running lines some good ones are Airflo's Ridge Running line in 30#,
Monic .030, SA Dragontail or Spey Monocore.
In the Delta I like the 8/9 for a medium load.

How you get the line out and fishing is personal preference so as long as it works and is easy no one should care but the caster. MSB
