Airflo Skagit FIST review kinda sorta

I posted this on youtube last week so its kind of old stuff in terms of the internet. I thought I would post it here today just for fun. Its a very cool line.

For grins I think I might try to downsize from the suggested 510 grains which flies like a rabid bat out of Hades and fishes uber deep as billed. Might experiment with a 450 for Scandi and light Skagit fun and make it a goal to stick a winter run next winter with it, providing there are any winter runs, running next winter. Might be a blast on the D this summer in the middle of a sunny day at the lighter weight. Excellent job designing the FIST Brian Silvey, Tim Rajeff et al.

Also, I did do a write up on my blog and posted a link to Peter Charles excellent review on his website and youtube channel.

Nice one Skagitmeister. Cool footage and nice casting. I have been wanting to try that line. Just might have to buy it. The beard is coming in nicely too.
Best, Nate

Ben mentioned that you were somewhat responsible for getting him excited about the line for its slow fishing capabilities. So thanks for that.
