    If got the gs 2 10ft 7# and use a 7wt Cortland Camo intermediate for night time seatrouting and works fine so a 7wt should be all you need

    Default Unusual

    The delta spey yellow head is 65ft, are you really going to really that on a 7wt?

    The 10/11 is 44grams and working back in roughly 4 gram increments, you would be looking at about a 1/2 if they made such a thing, which clearly they don't.

    I had a look through the airflo trout lines and couldn't find anything else you may be referring to so am a bit confused.

    Default Fair enough

    aha I see, trout lines and salmon lines are rated differently because not all the line is in the air when spey casting. If you want to use a multi tip system when trout fishing, you should look for airflo polyleaders, which are widely available.

    You need to match your line weight to the leader, so make sure you get the trout version. I would also not go more than 5ft long or you will find the set up feels awkward and unbalanced. If you want to use a longer polyleader you will need to cut the tip of the mainline back to suit. This is skill that takes educated feel learned through trial and error, but as a rough guide you may want to take 7ft off for a 10ft leader, as the replacement tips are usually a little lighter. I would get some good advice first though if you are not to experienced.

    There are trout multi tips around though, here's one Specialist Single Handed Coldwater Lines | Rio Versitip

    Can't imagine paying that for a fly line though. I buy a kinnelle premium line from ebay for about 12, which are excellent and have a go at making one.

    Or simply buy a sunk line, which isn't much hassle trout fishing really.
