    Hi Don,

    Typically you will want to match the line weight to the weight of the fly rod. 5 wt line for 5wt rod. But there are occasions where you might want to go up a weight in line to help load your rod. I have a stiff 7 weight that I like to use for streamer fishing and carp fishing, and I have an 8wt line on it. The extra weight helps load the rod faster, so I can shoot out more line with fewer back casts.

    I hope this helps.

    How flexible are flyrods to use different weight lines? Ie, is a 5wt rod only used with 5 wt line?
