Thanks for the explanation. It seems like you'd be limited to using a fairly short head with the switch as well as the limitation of basically being able to cast directly downstream of where you are, whereas with the traditional single spey you can cast with a bit longer head (your anchor is farther upsteam) and you can cast a bit farther upsteam. What's the main advantage of the switch over the single spey, besides just moving the rod through a shorter casting stroke? BFR
Most people on this board should feel fortunate. We all have big, fat rods AND know how to use them.
