Product Description

Casting large, heavy flies and fast sinking tips has traditionally been tough for a spey caster. The advent of Skagit lines and Skagit casting techniques has completley changed this and allows even the most novice of anglers to cast the big stuff typical for the colder months and high water levels.

RIO's Skagit lines are 120 ft long in total and have a short back taper leading to a level, heavy head that ends with a loop. Anglers need to attach some form of tip to the front end of these lines; be it floating, intermediate or sinking. The heavy front end of the line lifts out fast sinking tips and the largest of flies with exceptional ease. Skagit casting is easy for novice or experienced casters to learn and exceptionally useful in situations with tight, restricted back casting space.

RIO offers two options in the Skagit line:
1) A Skagit line on its own that requires the addition of a front tip (floating or sinking). RIO recommends Skagit MOW Tips for the very best in performance, but anglers can also add standard 15 ft sink tips, or level sections of T-8, T-11, T-14 or T-17 as conditions dictate.
2) for anglers that do not have their own tips; a VersiTip model that comes packaged with a shooting head wallet, a 5 ft cheater and a 15 ft DC Type 6 (6 ips, 15 cm/s) and a DC Type 8 (8 ips, 20 cm/s) sinking tip is a better option.
