The need had become blatantly obvious, a shorter head to match the now extremely popular Switch rods. But the right line to match these versatile tools had been unavailable, until now. The new Skagit Switch line hits the mark dead on. Shorter in length then our Skagit Compact, this new addition to the Skagit group of lines vary from 18' to 20' with 7 sizes ranging from 360 to 540 grains.
Designed to load fast action switch rods in tight casting situation, move 10' to 12' of sink tip, and reach out to hit the zone. Looped at both ends for ease of use, the front loop has the line size clearly marked for easy identification. The mint green color keeps the line visible and controllable at any distance.
Couple this with either a 20lb or 30lb Ridged Running line and you have the pinnacle in switchmatch for your favourite rod. So, just add a sink tip and your good to go. The Skagit Switch line has rapidly gained a cult following with single hand rod Spey casters.
Skagit Compact lines were originally designed by the steelheaders of the Pacific North West of United States. To get flies in front of fish whatever the conditions, Skagit heads excel in banging out heavy sink tips cast after cast. The best tips to use are either Custom Cut Tips or the New 14' Salmon Polyleaders, so make sure you get a range to cover your options.
