As to some questions you've asked, I used a 10' 7 wt Sage SP (so your 8 wt should be enough) and yes, you need a license to fish both with a guide and on your own. Do be careful of the protected waters off Grace Bay - can't fish them from shore.
Where were you able to fish on your own Ray? I will be staying at Grace Bay, so now that's ruled out.
