I have a few questions for those of you advanced Scandi guys I am hoping can help me make a decision and properly rig head/tip/leader so that I am not fighting lines and able to continue casting the way I have, but able to get my fly down deep. I have read in multiple places, and even seen people using sinking Scandi heads. Either full sink, or sink tips with density compensated heads to effectively fish deep down. Previously I had reserved my winter steelhead deep sunk fly work to purely Skagit heads with T11 or T17 tips. This winter I want to fish with mostly Scandi heads (obviously there are places where a large fly and Skagit head will have their place) and am exploring ways in which to get my fly down deep. Until recently that meant going with a head and not having the option to change sinking rates on the river to something slower than what your sinking head was rated for. Yet seeing Rio's offering, I am intrigued and was wondering if I am way off here, or is this something I could do and still have fun casting this set-up. Use Rio's Scandi Body, Intermediate sink rate. Loop on tips from intermediate sink rate, all the way to Type 6 sink rate. Finally finish the rig with a 15 foot poly-leader of an equal or faster sinking rate than the tip I have currently rigged. My internal justification for this goes as such, the Rio Scandi body is only 23 feet long, much less than what would be required for a 13'3" spey rod, but conveniently if looped with a 15 foot "tip" would make the head 38 feet long, roughly a foot shorter than the max acceptable head length of 3 times the rod length. Thus creating a sinking tip head. The poly leader being of equal, or greater sink rate would also create a poor man's density compensated line while still having a degree of modularity that would not involve purchasing 5 or more shooting heads & carrying them with me on the water. Rather a tip wallet, poly-leader wallet with a nice little spool of tippet and a box of flies so that I could maximize the kinds of water I can cover while hiking around, without having to drag along another rod and all of it's requisite kit. Is the above scenario feasible? Castable? Or am I trying to create some sort of monster that nobody on this message board has attempted? Or would I be better off purchasing a single additional head of the sinking tip variety and call it good? Any and all opinions/advice are welcomed.
