We have a completely redesigned our Skagit head series for 2021. Leaving the traditional, level-belly Skagit tapers behind, our new lines are fully tapered from end to end. This provides the smoothest power delivery from the rod, through the line, to the tip, and ultimately to the fly. We have painstakingly optimized the tip diameter of these heads to cover a broad spectrum of sink tip lengths and weights. No matter what you attach to the end, this line will deliver it accurately with authority.
The intermediate head swings deeper and slower than it’s floating counterpart. Our intermediate Skagit excels at waking up lethargic fish with a deep, tantalizing presentation. It is available in a moss green color that is visible at distance, but not too obnoxious. The back of the head is identified with a black band that contrasts well with bright colored shooting lines.
