Hi, new to the forum and would really appreciate some advice on an 8# 12'6" sage I bought recently and which line to match with it. I emailed Sage who suggested a skagit 550 head. However, I am not experienced with shooting heads and find mid-speys easier. Any advice hugely appreciated.

Welcome to the Board

RIO is a sponsor and it is easy to check their site http://www.rioproducts.com/pages/speyrecs.asp. They recommend a 7/8 (type A) or 8/9 (type B) load on the rod. It is good to cast rods and lines before purchase as there are some personal plreferences that make a big difference in how well the line works for you.

There is probably a Board member close enough to give a line a try, or there are several sponsor shops that wil ship a line out for trial. That way you are only out the cost of shipping, if you do not llike the line.
