When I first started to fly fish I would chase after any type from coarse fish like carp to crappies, bass, and the delicate various trout species.
I have narrowed my type of fishing in the last twenty years to only Steelhead and all salmon species. Also staying to rivers and our ocean beaches. The big boys are the Spring (Chinook) and the Chum (Dog) salmon. These guys are like freight trains - there is no stopping their powerful runs. They are also known as rod breakers.
With the power of these fish, I find an 8 weight fly line to be the minimum size required if you want to bring the salmon in as fast as possible, and to reduce the strain on the fish while increasing their survival when released.
My preferences for beach fishing have been the 8-wt line. Others have successfully used smaller weight lines but if your targeting very large fish like our Spring and Chum salmon 20 pound plus you are able to handle the power they expose you to on their long runs. This does not limit its ability with catching the smaller salmon (Pinks, Coho). It allows you to put less stress on the smaller species of salmon and can lesson the duration of the fight to ensure their survival rate upon release. I say smaller but they can range from 3 to 18 pounds in our local areas.
With our weather conditions of high winds, strong surf and various debris in the water, the 8wt fly line easily handles them and cuts through these obstacles that will deter your casting ability on the beaches.
The Miramichi Demon Fly rod is a true fast action with power to spare. Oh did I say very attractive?
