I catch larger Steelhead using my Spey rod because it is what I use mostly.
What is going to be more important is where the rods will be used. The long rods are not going to come out when run is going to be more conducive to nymph fishing. The single hander is not going to be used when the run is a narrow channel 80 feet away.
Here is how I look at it.
- Close in fishing - single hander
- Distance and line control - two hander
