So I am trying to figure out a way to nymph/ dead drift with my spey rod and be able to swing using my skagit line. I want to be able to do both styles of fishing and not carry 2 rods. Now from what I have researched guys are using 10-12ft leader, yarn as an indicator, floating tip, skagit head, running line. Now I have been told you can't dead drift with a spey because there's to much drag from the line, but I don't like that answer. I figure that, yeah ok you can do it but you will have to high stick to illiminate drag to get a good dead drift. But you can only high stick so far and you lose the ability fish farther away from yourself. Maybe dip and flip upstream, and then as your line comes parallel with you rollcast out as far as you want and then mend my little heart out of it? Anybody have any insight into this? Or am I stuck carrying 2 rods the rest of my natural life?
