Rio Skagit Flight VersiTip System
 
Anyone have any experience with this Spey line system? Was wondering if it seems like a good deal to you experts.

I had a multi tip short head for my first Spey line (55) head. I found that casting 15' sinking tips was way more work than I wanted to mess with. I use this; http://www.theflyfishingforum.com/fo...spey-line.html Scroll to the bottom below the pictures for the leader formula. For 20 years I used this set up for streamer fishing with my single hand rods.

When it came to Spey casting streamers I was running with the herd, doing whatever the herd did. But like I said sink tips were a hassle. So I made myself a leader for my spey line and it is all I have used for the past three years. If you need to get flies down you use the leader as described, if you are fishing shallow you remove the lead head. Before you start wondering if they'll cast I'll tell you that once used to the leaders you will cast fine. I can boom out a 90 foot cast and turn the leader & fly over like a dry fly line. In the end the choice is yours, when I spot a question that I have found an answer to I share what I found.

If this is for the Bass thing, I think we already went over Skagit lines not being the right line for that. Now if you plan to go swing flies in some big fast river, then yah, this would work just fine.

If this is for the Bass thing, this would be at least thread number three for it.

Was just a question. Seemed like a nice all in one package.
