Trout Spey/Switch Rod?
I see some occasional references to 5 wt trout spey rods and have myself just had a 4-5 wt 11' custom rod made for me that I originally considered a trout spey.
On reflection, does any 5 wt DH over 10' actually fall into the trout spey category. It is more than adequate for smallmouth, useful on steelhead, and probably overpowers most trout. In short,IMO it's more a switch rod.
If so, where does a SH 9' 5 wt fit in the nomenclature?
