The reel I would not reccomend for salmon: I would go with the FNHLA79 (7-9wt) the one you have selected is a 3-5wt.
The rod is perfect for salmon a nice 8wt

Good Luck and Enjoy

Yeah, basically what Mike said, Bravo. If you can get a killer deal, all the better. Fenwick has been known to make good quality tackle for a long long time...most of them at reasonable prices too. I personally like a slightly longer flyrod, like a 9'6" or 10', but a 9' will be just fine.

Check out www.cabelas.com
they have the Temple fork combo
9'.6" 8wt with reel, line and backing for $209.00US
I have a Temple Fork Ti 9'.6" 8wt series and it works great for me
