If you don't plan on doing this regularily or targeting stripes, I would look at the guide. Most, if not all, guides have rods to use. If not, plan on going about $800-1000 out of pocket for the set up. Lean towards the 9# to help cut the wind.

Had a Scott 9 wt, but I sold it last year. Great inshore rod.

Try these: http://www.tforods.com/fly-fishing/r...fessional.html. I'd lean towards spending the most of my $$$ on the reel. That's what's going to do most of the work anyway.

Russ said what I was about to. One time deal just rent one from the guide. Stripers up here is the only other use you'd have of it.
Have fun. Be quiet and no big movements.

Jerky look at redington rods like the predator. They are pretty nice little rods for the $. They really aren't that far behind sage IMO for the price difference.

I do recommend that you purchase a setup though. You need to practice casting (from your yeti obviously ) prior to the trip.

You need to be able to shoot lots of line with very few back cast. Practice your double haul. You want to be able to shoot 60ft of line with little to no effort. Practice your strip set. Also practice making close soft presentations. You don't want you fly slamming the water on the 40ft cast. Good luck.

You forgot the 40mph cross winds.
