Default Re: 9ft 5w rod small stream spey fly line?

Any line with a longer belly should work perfect, well any line would work perfect really...

I have utilized spey casts with my Thomas & Thomas NS5 fly rod and a 5 wt Cortland BOSS, absolutely outstanding line for that application.

If most of your casts are less than 30' you COULD over-line it by one weight, but I don't think you will need to. I wouldn't...

FYI, spey casts can be utilized with basically any fly line...

If you want to huck streamers and/or tips, I would go with an Airflo 40+ or an SA Textured Mag Taper
