Micro Skagit Series Two-Handed Rods

True Illustration of Ed Ward’s Vision

The Micro Skagit category consists of three rods rated to cast 275 grain heads or lower. Their tapers have been designed to pleasantly accommodate both single-handed Spey/Skagit-type casts and two-handed Spey/Skagit-type casts. Whether you’re picking apart small to medium sized rivers on foot swinging soft hackles, throwing big streamers into the bank from a boat, or busting big bushy salmon flies into the teeth of an afternoon breeze, these nifty little hybrid rods should have a permanent place in your quiver. The 9’9” 3wt and 10’4wt both have cigar-style single-welled upper grips and switch-style lower handles, while the 10’ 4” 5wt has a grip/handle configuration like the Pure Skagit Rod style outlined in the next section.

"Just wanted to send a note just to say how much I love this rod man! Casting this rod is just a pleasure, line just jumps off this thing so effortlessly! I actually found it even better cack handed for some reason probably because I am less likely to put more effort into it from that side. And when I hooked up and that baby bent right to cork, so sweet! "
