It's kind of hard to say without knowing what the cfs is and all that. But, Gary's advice is good on the 250-300 grain lines. I'd lean a little more towards the 300. If you're fishing these flies on or near the bottom with a slow retrieve then I would consider a floating line and split shot as well. The problem with sink-tips is the they will sink and wrap structure on the bottom. If the bottom is mostly uniform where you'll be fishing then this will be less of a problem. If the fly doesn't have to be moved that much and there's a lot of structure then I'd go with floating line. 4-8ft depths aren't really that hard to reach on a dead drift.
