I've done quite a bit of that all with a 14' spey rod. Its a home built rod from Cabela blanks and oversized SIC guides. I guess you'd say I've had modest success with the method. But I'm the exception and have reason to believe, for whatever reason, you get more solid hook ups with the shorter one handed rods most guys use for drift fishing. I just like using that long rod. Now I'm trying a 12.5' temple fork spey rod that I like a lot better but don't have enough experience with it yet to tell about hook ups. Besides, I'm swinging flies almost exclusively these days. Hope that helps.
