You can use the DT fly line with a Spey rod. The introduction of Spey specific lines is relatively new in the US, and DT lines (and custom hand made lines) were commonly used prior to Rio's introduction of Spey specific fly lines.

Al Buhr recommends Spey students use a DT line to improve their skills, because the DT highlights casting faults.
