Spey rods rose to popularity in the Pacific Northwest due to their ease of use for targeting anadromous fish.Scientific Anglers floating Third Coast Skagit head is designed to work in concert with two-handed rods to cast heavy sink tips and large flies for salmon and steelhead. Its short-head design loads rods quickly, and the short taper provides enough power to turn over even the largest setup.
- Extremely short and powerful taper for casting heavy sink tips
- Extended grain weights for any rod size
- Color change at the rear of the head
- Short head provides quick rod loading
- Suited for two-hand and switch rods
- Braided multifilament core
Cleaning with soap and water on a cloth removes most of the dirt, but cleaning pads work even better. Properly cleaned, your lines will cast better and last longer, certainly a good trade-off for a couple of minutes of line maintenance.To use the cleaning pad, pinch the pad over the line so that the abrasive, non-foam side touches the line. Pull the fly line through the pad under some tension. Repeat this process until some of the fly line color is visible on the pad.Clean your lines every 2-3 outings, or anytime you think dirt is hindering their performance. The cleaning pads are easy to carry in your vest or tackle bag and can be used anytime, wet or dry.Note that flyline dressing can be used to reduce friction during competition- or practice casting scenarios, but we don’t recommend it for fishing.
