SA Spey Lite Integrated Skagit Intermediate
Designed for light double-handed duty and with a short, powerful head, the Skagit Lite Intermediate is ideal for smaller streams and trout Spey applications when getting just beneath the surface is key. Available in grain weights from 150-420, this two-colored line features a textured, black marker at the end of the head that serves as a visible, and audible, notification on where to begin your cast. Works perfectly with SA's SONAR Sinking Leaders and textured TC Tips. From dredging for steelhead to swinging streamers for trout, the Skagit Lite is Spey on a smaller scale.
Features of the Spey Lite Integrated Skagit Intermediate Line:
- Ultra-short head for turning over heavy tips and large, weighted flies with light two-handed rods
- Integrated floating line reduces hinging on casts and eliminates loop-to-loop connection; also allows you to strip to the sink-tip connection to increase chances of hooking followers
- Ultra-short head length works well for casting with limited room behind you
- Floating running line with intermediate sink head
- Tip recommendations: 150-210 grains – SONAR leaders, 240-300 grains – 8’ TC Tips, 330-360 grains – 8’ or 10’ TC Tips
- Also works with single-handed rods
- Braided multifilament core; for use in moderate and cold climates
SCIENTIFIC ANGLERS LINE IDENTIFICATION (SA•ID)
As a result of our lab's mission to continually improve our lines, we bring you SA ID. SA ID is an innovative line marking system allowing you to identify your lines at a glance. Wonder if a shooting head is 200 grain or a 300? Just look at the SAID.
ADVANCED SHOOTING TECHNOLOGY
Scientific Anglers’ patented dry-slick technology provides continual line slickness, allowing the line to shoot farther as it moves through the guides. Lines with AST easily shed dirt, algae, and other parasitic drag particles, allowing lines to cast farther, float higher, and stay cleaner than traditional lines.
Exceptionally slick and strong, SA's welded Streamlined Loops produce smoother casts and easier turnover with a seamless fly-line-to-loop transition making for softer landings and cleaner pickups.
AUDIBLE REFERENCE POINT
The Audible Reference Point is the inverse of the Tactile Reference Point. It’s an embossed section of line where the head meets the running line, allowing you to hear that transition as you strip in line.
For every one fish eating on top, there are ten feeding beneath it. SA's SONAR sinking technology takes flies to where the fish are: beneath the surface. Using proprietary tungsten formulations and unique tapering, the SONAR sinking technology gets flies down, and keeps them there.
