when I used to fish for trout and steelhead I used a 9 wgt. it was heavy but it caught a lot of 10 inch fish as well as 15 lb steelhead. the only thing that is important in fly fishing is what is on the end of the line. I have caught 6 0z. fish on a steel casting rod and 30 lb line using a 4 lb leader and a 14 hook and a 52 lb fish on a 12 lb leader hooked to a 17 lb line.

in other words you got it, use it and have fun. don't worry about what other people say if you are having fun, so what. I have had a blast using a cane pole, 15 lb line a small hook catching a washtub full on carp. the main thing you are fishing
