    Thanks! I’m looking at recommendations for guides and little confused on 8L guide size.

    I like the KL-H Fuji's. Ring material and frame finish depends on what you prefer cosmetically and where you set your budget. Honestly, if it's a dedicated salmon rod, no need for 8L's, 6's are plenty big and 7's are a good compromise if you think you'll chase a few steelhead with it when the temps dip below the freezing point.
