Hi There, I'm completly new to Switch or Spey World, I have 25 years of fishing Trout with single hand overhead cast, and last 2 years Fishing salmon Still with single hand overhead cast. I want something new. So now I'm sick about ordering an Echo Classis 11ft in 8wt. Switch Rod outfit, Coming with an Echo ION Reel, and line of my choice. The seller Offers the Rio switch line not the Rio switch Chukar. I want to know what is the best choice of line for this Rod. Here are some Infos. I will Fish Atlantic salmon in narrow Rivers 100ft wide or less with some exceptions going more than 100 ft wide. Water depth 10 feet or less also with some exceptions maybe 15 feet. Many pools have lots of back cast room but lots of them have no back cast room. I use standard salmon flies From 2 to 10 size some with Spey shape but not really bigger than that. I know that Switch Line have a 55ft head that is more than 3 times the lenght of the ROD. They say that this line have the ability to be mended to have the right presentation. What about Switch chukar mending ability. Everyone tells me that in salmon fishing presentation is the key. Some other people recommends the Rio Scandi Body 23Ft head, on which I would have to use a rinning line Grip shooter or connectcore. Really I'm lost and I'm gonna be on my own on that cause I don't know anyone that fish a spey or a switch rod here. I have another question about the reel , The rod is a 8wt and the reel included in the outfit in a ION 8/10 is that ok or I need bigger than this considering that I fish in smaller river. There will be 200 yards of backing on that.. Also another question on the Versitip or verisleaders. In 10 ft of water do I need to have fast sinking tip or slow sinking tips for Salmon. I have always used Floating line with standard tippet But I,m open to everything. So there it Is I'm really confused and alone in this Big world. What would be your best combination to use on this Switch rod.
