Skagit lines are popular if you're casting heavy flies or/and sink tips, the line is short and fat and has weight to lift them from the water, a perry poke is cast used with Skagit lines to set an anchor.Do you fellas use snap - t , perry poke & snake roll casts for salmon fishing with two handed speyrods or just double & single Spey cast ? Are skagit lines popular ?
Yes skagit lines are fairly popular here in the UK, I've a airflo rage that gets occasional use, I've also a short, mid and long belly they all have there applications but the mid gets the most use.I live near the skagit river & was just starting with two hangers when the skagit lines & cast where being developed. I still have a bunch of those early lines made by splicing various fly lines together. I was curious if across the pond they ever caught on or if longbelly double tapered lines were still the norm
