SA Skagit Extreme Intermediate Head

Rivers are falling into shape rather nicely and the Clackamas was no exception yesterday, as I got a chance to spend time swinging bugs with my good pal and steelhead guide, Jeff Hickman.  We had a stellar time out there probing the goods with tips and spun wads of marabou.  It sure felt good to share a few laughs and maintain the search that is so bitter sweet this time of year.

One of Jeff's rods was strung up with a Scientific Anglers Skagit Extreme Intermediate Head that I was able to play around with a little bit.  It is certainly a  joy to cast, but the real benefit is how this line works to slow down fly speed and achieve a deeper presentation.  I really think that this line is going to be a game changer, especially during mid winter excursions.

Here, Jeff gets into a little more detail on the line and how it can help you out there on the river.

Drop us a line or shoot us an email if you need any grain weight recommendations.  We are always happy to hear from you!

Have a good time out there,
