I was in a fly shop yesterday asking a few questions about mutlitip line options for a new 9' 8wt rod I just acquired. To my surprise, the gentleman suggested that I consider a 5wt spey line instead of an 8wt versi-tip. I wasn't planning to make a purchase yesterday anyway so I told him I'd think about it and be back. Has anyone tried such a thing? I'll be swinging for steel & some coho. I'd love to hear your thoughts!
