Default Re: A switch outfit for trout?

A lot of the breakoffs I had were my fault, I learned not to have the rod tip low and a tight grip on the line and moved up to 1x flouro. I dont see how anybody could look down at spey casting for trout. I dont see the SH guys fishing the "other" bank w/ a nymph or watching a 28" trout shoot four feet in the air. I`m just a few years into fly fishing, spey for almost one, and over thirty years chuck`in spinners. I`ve never hooked so many BIG trout till I got this switch rod. Today I had a bow come off right next to me on the bank that was over 28", landed one just under 24", 20" brown and a few under 20. All of them casting a snap T w/ my 450gr switch skagit head and a real big bug across the river.
