I was wondering why would I need to spey?? I plan on swing flies with my 9-6 8 wt in small rivers. Washougal,East fork of the Lewis, Klickitat.etc... I have a 8 wt spey blank on its way. don't know if I'll build it or gift it. Its 12-6 so would that be a spey rod or switch rod?? Please help I'm a newobee with all of this fly fishing stuff for steelhead.
