I'm looking for a decent starter spey setup for swinging flies on Airflo Polyleaders on Lake Michigan tribs. The St. Croix 13' 7/8 is a contender right now. Any other comparable rods out there? Also, would a Redington AS or AL reel work well? What size and large arbor or standard? A few people have recommended the Rio Windcutter 8/9/10 for this setup. Is that the way to go for a new speycaster with this setup or are there other lines to consider as well? Any advice offered is appreciated. Thanks!
