Hi,could you help me with connection of custom intermediate sink tip to skagit line, please? Will I have a problem with energy transition from skagit line to custom intermediate sink tip, when sink tip is ended with greys braided loop (end of sink tip, which is attached to skagit line)? Please...
I am new to salmon fishing but had a week on the Findhorn which prompted my Ebay purchases of a Shakespeare Skagit 12'9" 9# and a Loomis NRX 14' 9/10#. The only line I have is the Airflo Rage Shooting Head in 9/10# (the kit comes with 3 x 12’ tips - floating, intermediate and fast sinking).
For a Skeena trip in August, I'd like to bring a skagit head to accompany my Guideline Multitip line, mostly to be able to handle bigger flies and/or deeper water, if need be.
The rod is the Guideline NT8, 12' 9", #8/9.
At the moment I'm considering these lines :
Airflo Skagit Compact...
Selling this rod as I have the 6pc version and trying to slim down my collection.
The lines I have used on it are the AFS 6/7 or the 7/8. The Rio short head Spey 6/7. The SVT in 7 or an 8. Skagit 510
The rod has been used but is in good condition and has original bag and metal tube.
I’m looking to try a skagit set up this spring. I’ll be fishing it off a zephrus 13,6 8/9#. I have looked into it a bit and think I have the jist of it. My rod is rated 600 grains so would a 540 grain skagit fished with 10ft T7 and 10ft T10 be the correct formula or have I gotten it wrong, thanks.

A year or two ago built a #5wt 11ft micro two handed rod.
And not willing to pay exorbitant prices for the likes of OPST Commando head etc. I've constructed my own lines from bigger Salom lines.
However recently bought of fleabay a...
Selling this beautiful handcrafted rod as I have no use for it at the moment. It's is rated 9/10/11 - 650-1000 Grains.
So it has a very wide window and handles lines from Skagit to Full Speylines equally well. The rod is little used and
in very good condition. 470,-- posted. PM if interested...
Just a thought in that what do you think I might reasonably expect to turn over on the end of a Skagit line tips wise and what do you think I could actually get away with?
Have a few thoughts in the old grey matter concerning some old Rio 30ft heads I have that were designed for the Rio lines in...

I’ve recently bought an 11ft 3ins 7# Airflo airtec is nano switch rod. I want to buy a skagit line for it but am baffled by how they seem to come in grains rather than rod weight!
My question is what grain weight of skagit line should I buy for a 7# switch rod? I’d be grateful for any advice...
Hello to all,
I´d like to pair my switch rod (Sage One 5116) with some line. I want versatile set-up for short to medium distance, allowing good presentation and casting in tight quarters. My idea is to buy Airflo Skagit Scout (270 gr), intergrate it with some mono shooting line and use 14´...
