Micro Skagit D² (Dual Density) Tips (sink/float) are built with the OPST 5wt and up single-hand rods, and Trout Spey Rods in mind. Dual-density tips provide a different density in the front and back, which allows them to sink or float at different rates. This can be a very effective way to control the presentation of your fly, and it can be especially useful for fishing in shallow water or for targeting fish that are holding near the bottom.
OPST gives thanks to Ed Ward, one of the original creators of the MOW tip, who provided input in the design process. Ed is a highly respected fly fishing expert, and his advice undoubtedly helps to ensure that these tips are effective and reliable.
