Skagit Intermediate for Salmon & Steelhead
Completely redesigned! Instead of the level-belly Skagit tapers, these skagit lines are fully tapered from end to end. This ensures the smoothest power delivery from the rod, through the line, to the tip, and ultimately to the fly. SA has optimized the tip diameter of these heads to cover a broad spectrum of sink tip lengths and weights. No matter what you attach to the end, this line will deliver it accurately and with authority.
The intermediate head swings deeper and slower than it’s floating counterpart. Our intermediate Skagit excels at waking up lethargic fish with a deep, enticing. It is available in a moss green color that is visible at distance, and pleasing to the eye. The back of the head is identified with a black band that contrasts well with bright colored shooting lines.
Features of the Skagit Floating Fly Line:• Compact, powerful design with fully tapered belly for consistent turnover and accurate delivery
• Designed to be used with sink tips for targeting steelhead and salmon
• High contrast sighter at the rear of the head identifies the perfect overhang
• Intermediate sink density swings flies deeper and slower than a floating head
• Braided multifilament core for moderate and cold climates
SCIENTIFIC ANGLERS LINE IDENTIFICATION (SA•ID)
SA brings 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 SA ID.
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, welded Streamlined Loops produce smoother casts and easier turnover with a seamless fly-line-to-loop transition making for softer landings and cleaner pickups.
