Default Straight mono on a large arbor fly reel

Looking for opinions on using straight mono (20 lbs with 8 lbs leader) for steelhead. We run this
set-up alot because Michigan streams tend
to be snaggy and if you get hung up
and can't get to it, you end up needing to
cut your line. Which is why I'm not running
fly line. We're just fishing spawn bags
and sometime yarn flys. A few split shot
and a short underhand upstream cast.

Just wondering if the drag will still work
properly using monofilament on a reel
intended for fly line.
