I love this rod and use it mostly in the summer, so I don't have a skagit recommendation. I like the 5/6 afs cut back about 5' to 6' to 320grns. I have the Sage indicator taper line(320grn), don't really care for it, as it doesn't cast very well as just a floater. The AFS casts an indicator pretty well, so changing tactics between swinging and indicator, is better served with the AFS. I like to use mono leaders but I'll throw on an intermediate 10' poly on occasion. Leader lengths 10 - 12' with the appropriate tippet size for the fly, will comfortably cast upto a size four bushy skater; larger skaters start to really affect the cast.

I will say I do prefer the Rio AFS over the Airflo compact scandi....not that I don't like Airflo because I think Airflo makes the best skagit lines.

James.
