Default Moving from a spey rod to a switch.

My home river, the Kvichak is a great spey river. I have been casting a spey for quite a few years. I end up fishing alone and have found it difficult to land large fish without dragging them on the bank. I look for wet grass and never onto sand or gravel but it is difficult. I have found handling an 11' rod with a 25+ inch trout standing thigh deep easier to manage that the 13 footer.

Has anyone else found the switch rod more manageable than the longer rods?

George
