As casting with Skagit heads with short two-hand rods and single-hand rods continues to grow in popularity, the need for a line specialized for the task grew with it.
The Skagit Scout is the shortest head we have ever produced. It’s the perfect length for easy casts on your favorite switch rod, compact spey, or one-hand spey rod. Its extra-compact length requires minimal casting room, opening up water previously un-fishable by longer lines.
The Skagit Scout comes in a wide range of sizes from 150gr to 540gr. As with all Skagit-style heads, it is exclusively designed to be used with a sink tip. Pair it up with a few of our sink tips (or PolyLeaders for the smallest sizes) to dial-in your favorite fly-swinging fisheries!
