|Right before he straightened the hook. Maybe I should lay off the Navy jokes!|
This cool little line is shaped like a small Skagit with a heaver than normal running line fused into it. the color of the head is easy to see from above and super stealthy from below. I complained about the oversized running line until I realized it would be a bummer to strip flies with a thin diameter mono or even coated running line--duh! The little Skagit loved all the waterborne cast most Skagit fanatics are use to, but it did require me to compact my movement as it was only a 18' head and I have been throwing Scandi's most of the winter. the little head turned even the densest of all my pollys over with ease, and that's saying something as I was using a 10'8' 4wt. The chunky little head weighed in at a slim 300grains yet slopped the meat out there like a Navy cook--and just like a Navy cook it must have had all its weight right up front. (disclaimer: I am a Coast Guard Veteran so I have been cracking sarcastic Navy jokes for over two decades...now that I think of it that's not much of a disclaimer, is it, oh well) Anyhow, if your looking to advance your trout spey game, throw mini tips, and sound the dinner bell check out this little line, I'm sure its gonna help me call out some Williamson Red Bands, like a pig farmer yelling SUUUUUEEEEEE!
