Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 39 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by fly rod new to fly fishing, went out once and practiced after watching how to videos. first time on the lake i caught 10 to 12 perch and an 18'' black bass on an 8 wt rod and line. everything seemed to work great, the only problems i had were my inexperience i believe. thinking about getting a 4 or 5 wt to play with the smaller fish. i am very satisfied so far. September 5, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Rod and reel ok. Line pathetic. I have fished for trout 4 times with this outfit. Rod and reel are actually pretty good. Line is terrible. The included line will not cast through the eyes. Plus it started sinking almost immediately. I removed the reel and line from the outfit and installed another reel with what I know to be great line. This change made all the difference in the world. In my opinion a better line would make this outfit come alive! July 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value and ready to use... I recently purchased this outfit to have as a heavier weight rod to use for still water fishing in Florida and Salt water. I am very happy with the quality of the rod and reel, and found it worked well in both calm and windy conditions. Rod has great action, and reel is very smooth. . Great quality at a reasonable price. June 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I'll be a return buyer I bought a six wt. rod as my first fly rod, well picked it out for christmas, and it was very good to learn on. I've used it for sunfish, trout, and some smaller saltwater species (croakers and spot). It was a very good rod for the price and I'm planning on getting a 4wt. for bluegill. Although there were a few minor problems, I feel like this is a great rod for anyone who wants to get into fly fishing, or doesn't want to blow a bunch of money October 9, 2012

A: 
It would most likely be a 5 wt line. You should only go up or down one level on line with your reel. So a 5 wt reel should be able to handle a 4wt or a 6wt line.

9' 5 wt is pretty much the best all around rod option for any beginner, at least from my experience. That would be my recommendation.

Yes. An 8 weight will work, but it's not great for anything over 10-15lbs especially if you're fishing mangroves

No, you have to either buy the right or left handed version. They aren't made like spinning reels where you can put the handle on either side.

No, you still have to reel this reel in by yourself. It's manual, if I'm understanding your question correctly.

A: 
Rig the reel backwards. Tie up the line and leader (and backer if you want). You can tape off the leader to the reel and start winding gently. Once you get to the end, then tape (unless already tied) the backing. Keep reeling until you get the amount you want on the reel or per the mfg manual (I usually keep at least 1/8" from the frame).. Remember to keep the line moving back and forth to make an even distribution on the reel. When done, pull 5-6" more and cut. Pull the line off, and rig it the proper direction. This keeps you from continually rigging, pulling back off, cutting, reeling on again. Once you get this proper length, make sure you measure each section and then annotate in the fonrt cover of you manual. Mine reads like this:

Backing 95 ft
Line: 90 ft
Leader: 9 ft

This way, I can modify if one length is longer than the rest.

I would say a 4 or 5 weight. That's going to be right in the middle. I like to use a 3/4 weight for bluegill and a 6 for bass. A 5 weight would do both well I think.

A: 
I certainly mean you no disrespect, or shortness, but it seems, from your question that you basically seek a "one size fits all" solution to your fly fishing needs. In my 4 1/2 decades of experience, I have not found such! Having said that, here is my answer to your question(s) ....
1) Your 9 ft rod is/will be/should be GREAT, assuming that you are not a so-called "expert" fly caster/fisherman, and you are fishing from/onto fairly "open" waters, like lakes, rivers, streams, etc. with fairly unlimited backcast & forecast areas. These could include fishing from a boat, fairly/reasonably brush/tree clear banks, etc. If you primarily fish in "tight" areas, like brush & tree filled banks of smaller streams, you would then be better served with a much shorter rod which would also necessitate more expertise and practice with same.
2) Your selection of #8wt. is what I would consider to be truly IDEAL for largemouth bass, particularly if you fish in an area where you can realistically expect to hook/catch "monsters" in the 5 pound (and up) size range. As far as smallmouth bass, bluegill, & trout go, I sincerely believe that an 8wt. outfit is gross overkill, and will "spook" more fish than it will catch.
3) For bluegill/bream, and "normal" or "smallish" sized trout, I use (and recommend that you use) a 4wt fly fishing rod & reel outfit. For "medium" sized trout, and a day of bluegill/bream fishing, a 6wt outfit would, in my opinion, be appropriate, given appropriately sized leaders, flies, etc.
4) I currently own/use both 4lb and 6 lb rod(s) and reel(s), spooled with WF-F line, and appropriate backing and leaders. I am in the process of researching (and buying) an 8lb outfit for my (hopefully) huge bass adventures. I prefer the "F" line, as opposed to a sinking line, except in/on specific locations/waters. I find it to be lighter, produces less "line slap" upon the water surface when cast, and generally better overall, assuming that your quarry are feeding on the surface.
IN SUMMARY, by ALL means, KEEP your 8 weight outfit, but I would suggest that you "relegate" it primarily to "industrial size(d)" bass fishing. Get yourself a "lighter" outfit, of either 4 weight or 6 weight, or preferably BOTH, for your smaller/lighter weight fish, particularly bluegill/bream, and most of the commonly found (and caught) trout.
If you found a mouse running through your kitchen one night, you certainly would not "call in" an "air strike", or a tank or artillary bombardment. A simple mouse trap, or maybe a .22 would be more than enough. The exact same thing applies to fly fishing - so don't "nuke 'em" with overkill - rather, match your equipment to the quarry at hand, and enjoy successful & enjoyable fly fishing for the rest of your life!
PS - Please do NOT "scrimp" or "be/get cheap" on your selection of fly line(s). Doing so will NOT serve you well, at all. I know it sounds foolish to buy an $80.00 "complete" fly outfit, and then spool it with $70.00 fly line, plus the added cost/expense of backing, leaders, flies, etc. Buy the BEST that is available, for your needs, and fish well. If you are unsure, the knowledgeable folks at Bass Pro can help/assist you in this serious decision making process.
CATCH LOTS, ENJOY IT ALL, and I hope that this has been a "little bit" helpful to you in your quest to "catch 'em all" !!
