Single Hand Spey Casting

Hi

It's 20 question time: Thought it might be fun to see how many fish single hand spey on the great lake trib's and the different methods we use.

Rods:
How many of you fish single hand rods and use spey type casts ?
What length rod do you use, and if given the choice what length would you like ?
What action would you or do you like and why ?

Reels: ?

Lines:
Do you use a short belly line and why ?
Do you use a long belly line and why ?
Do you use a multi tip line ?
Do you use a custom (home made type) line ?

Terminal End:
Leader length and why ?
Do you use lead or sink tips and why ?
If you use lead, do you use a dropper system or put the lead on the leader and why?
Do you use a float/indicator ?
If you use another method (as an indicator) what and why ?

Flies
I use mostly yarn ?
I use mostly nymphs ?
I use mostly spey type flies ?

Type of fishing
Swinging flies ?
Nymphing techniques ?

Thanks for your time in advance.
