Looking for a click-pawl reel to match Beulah Classic Switch rod ?

I'm looking for a click-pawl reel to match my Beulah Classic Switch rod 10'6'' (8-9wt).
I like the Hardy Marquis Fly Reel no.2 (9.62 oz.) but not sure if it will be too heavy for the rod ?

Note: It will be for salmon fishing and I would like to have a nice sound on it !!

Thanks all for your suggestions !

I think the Salmon 1 would balance the rod better, but not sure if you are needing the extra capacity of the 2. They hold a bunch of line if you are using heads.

A Bougle 3 3/4 is ideal for a switch rod

I have a Hardy Salmon 1 plus extra spool, neither of which have ever been fished. Let me know if you'd like to know more.

You've some good offers for reels above. Honestly, I think the Salmon No.2 is more reel than needed for the the road. A Salmon No. 1 or similarly-sized 3 5/8 to 3 3/4 inch reel should suffice.

Good luck.
