Sponsor Product Highlight: SA Spey Lite

Our friends at Scientific Anglers have a NEW Spey line range for all you Trout Spey-ers. The Spey Lite series includes an Integrated Scandi (20-25'), Integrated Skagit, and Skagit head (11-18'). They are available in a wide range of lightweight grain-ages (150 to 360 grains) for the new push of Trout Spey Rods.

I recently test the Spey Lite Integrated Scandi on a couple of different rods (Loop, T&T) and was really impressed with the overall line and a few specifics:

1: This is the first true "Trout" Scandi I am aware of, it has the delicacy to gently present small soft hackles on long leaders but retains plenty of punch for a conehead bugger presented with the new SA SONAR sinking leaders.

2. I am normally a shooting head guy (with mono running line) but the integrated line allows you to retrieve the fly in tight without the loop to loop connections. I was really impressed with how much "jump" the line had off the rod tip considering the integrated head. To me, this is no easy task in a line designed at such light grain weights...they did awesome with it.

3. The muted horizon color is well thought out for presenting flies to wary trout.

Check out the SPEY LITEs at Scientific Anglers or your local Spey Shop.
