Re: Good spey rod for stillwater bass
None of those are very heavy. You can get them up with pretty much any line. I have tossed really big Pike flies with mine and I'm not using a Skagit head or anything. The idea with Skagit is that it's heavy right uo to the tip. In a traditional spey line they have a long front taper. In theory you need a bunch of weight on the end of the line to pick up a heavy fly. From the sounds of it you don't need a Skagit line. Now the question is how far do you want to be able to put those flies? I can drop a large clouser 140' away with a short belly line on my 15'ers.
