Intermediate Lines

I'm kinda intrigued lately with the idea of a line that gets below the surface current and the different applications - namely a scandi type for soft hackles, and a skagit for a slower swing.

I see that there's the Ambush clear tip, and I assume SPG can whip one up, but what else is out there? Anyone know of or use something else? I mean 3-4 wt rods...the big sticks are pretty much covered-

Your right, SPG. Steve made me a full intermediate Scandi for my ACR 1214 at 326 grains. Great line and fishes well.

I agree, I only swing intermediates as they break the surface and don't leave the shadow V's that a floating line does. I use 3 different styles the first is just a plain old http://www.airflofishing.com/airflo-...r-delta_us.cfm Two line sizes larger than the rod, so for a 3 wt i get a 5wt single hand line. I also had one made for the close in work on the wood, you can check it out here http://southernoregonflyfishing.blog...ust-mabye.html, since then I have found a sweet small scandi that i use for my longer work! Its made by LTS, but its not a complete intermediate but rather a FHI, triple density Floating rear, hover middle, and intermediate front taper it swings so well. I use the 6wt on my 10,6" 3wt. I use all spey cast with it. you can check it out here http://fishon-sports.com/lts-iii-s-s...and-lines.html If you haven't tried swinging a intermediate you should.
