I throw the Rio
Scandi versi tip...it works...I think im going to get a rio
skagit, some t 15, and see what that dose....any suggestions?..for grains, or set ups
The grain weight of the Skagit head you will need will be determined in some considerable degree by the rod you choose to cast that Skagit head off. Often, there will be a recommended grain weight for that rod for any of the Skagit, Scandi and Spey lines, or at least a grain window (range).
For the tips, you may wish to get a good length of T11, T14 or even T17, and make tips in lengths from 5 to 15+ feet of each, and go out and test the set-up with your rod & Skagit head, varying the tip length for the depth & flow of fish-holding areas, as well as keeping the leader/tippet length to between 3 and 7 feet, with whatever chicken-sized intruder you fancy
If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles (spey rods). Doug Larson
