    I have a question, let's say with my 3110 and the Skagit at 250 and I find I have limited out on the size fly it will handle , is there something I can tweak in the configuration to maybe be able to toss a slightly larger or heavier fly ?
    Maybe something from OPST ?

    Your right Luke and I did ! A IMX Pro 41111 & I also customized my fly patterns to a larger profile with less weight. Worked great on the last 2 trips.

    Good stuff! Can never have too many trout spey rods. I have a couple in each size 3wt., 4wt., and 5wt.,

    I read on theses pages about guys throwing really heavy lines and tips, when all they really need is to go up a size or two in rod weight, to cast their larger flies.

    I really have moved away now from OPST type lines and am really loving the Scientific Anglers integrated SpeyLite Scandi lines. The 270gn. on 3wt. The 300 on 4wt, And the 325gn. on 5wt. are perfect for every size and weight of fly I use.

    Going deep with a weighted fly, just use a longer leader. On all the above lines I just use a regular 12ft. Rio tapered leader at 8lb. test, and then tie on the end of that a tippet of something lighter, if required, or sometimes just to make the leader longer.

    Cheers and beers,
    Luke.

    I like how you think Luke ! The SA Scandi lite is a sweet line, I made a comment some time ago how it would not handle the sinking leaders. This was wrong , the problem was the leader I was using was Rio and not the lighter SA leaders. I've moved away from the Commando too and find sinking leaders with sparesly tied flies sink just fine. Deep dredging is not really the task for these rods and is really only about 10% of the trout conditions I run into anyway.

    On another note , I was just told by Sage the new trout speys will be released in the next 2 weeks. That full frame reel someone was asking about in another post was designed for these rods.

    I like the 3 1/8” Hardy Wide Spool Perfect on my 3wt. troutspey rods, the Hardy Bougle 3 1/2” on my 4wt. troutspey’s and the Hardy Wide Spool Perfect 3 3/8” on my 5 wt. troutspey rods.

    All my troutspey rods are longer than 11’ feet long. I like 11’6” or more for all line weights.

    Yes Scandi all the way for troutspey!

    Cheers and beers!
    Luke.
