A Scandinavian head is a fly line head, tied to a running line, purchased separately, that is usually cast by a very fast rod. The Scandinavian head is is typically shorter than a Spey line, has no significant sink tip, and is generally not asked to throw huge flies.
Skagit lines are Spey lines on steroids. The heads are short, stocky, heavy and eat the steroids sink tips and large intruder flies with morning tea!!!!!
Skagit lines cast effortlessly, often expending energy equal to that required to cast a single-hand 5 weight 40 feet, belying the fact that the delivery package is a 650 grains Skagit head plus a 300-grain 24-foot tip.
