According to Redington this item weighs 2.55.
9 and 6 weight it would be a all around good rod for big and little fish
There is not necessarily A right answer to your question.
Although if you had only one knife to cut with, it would probably be functional for most of what you might need a knife for, but various knives are far more functional and efficient for various different purposes. The same if true for fly rods.
In the context of a fly rod, weight does not refer to the weight of the rod, but rather to the weight of the line the rod is designed to handle or cast. Line weights range from 1 (or even 0) to 15, and as a general rule the larger/heavier the fish that you are seeking and the larger the body of water you will be fishing in, the heavier the line weight generally used. Also, there is a general correlation between the line weight and the size of the body of water in which one if fishing (i.e., line weights 2-4 for small streams, line weights 5-7 for mid-sized streams and small rivers, line weights 5-7 for large rivers and line weights 10 and above for salt water).
Most fly fishing is done for trout in the 6" to 15" range in bodies of water than range from small streams to medium or larger rivers. If I were going to pick one rod for such fishing, (a) it would be a 5 or 6 weight (5 if most of my fishing were going to be in streams or small rivers and 6 if most of my fishing were going to be in larger rivers or lakes or other still waters) and (b) the length of the rod would be 8-1/2 foot or 9 foot - either should likely work quite well, though I would tend to favor the shorter rod for the same conditions that would favor the 5 weight and the longer rod for the same conditions that would favor the 6 weight. I hope this is helpful.
