I ordered a custom SGS Skandit kit to go with the rod. I told Bob he could pick the grain wt. he thought would work best for what I use. THEY SHIPPED TODAY!!! Should have her by this weekend. I got the rod to use while wadeing so back space wont be an issue but if I`m on the bank after the waters up I`ll just use the skagit part of it to get where I need to be...Still plan to use the switch in the canyon on the rocks-what I really got it for, but I know this 12'6" 4/5/6 will be my new love. I should change the title of this thread to "I switched to spey casting for trout"
