I've never really thought about whether it was a spey fly or simply a wet. In Sheweys book he does have some hairwing speys (albeit very few). I've always thought whether it was a spey or not was more determined by the hackling technique and hackle length. I was inspired for many of my flies by Marc Leblanc patterns which often use hairwings. I just know I like them.
