  • “what line weight?”
    Asked by G from Colorado on 10/26/2016 4:54:20 AM
    • You can choose the weight by selecting the tab to the right of the picture.

    • G from Colorado,
      If I understand your question, I believe you are looking for a 4/5 or 7/8 type line weight number to fit your rod. These types of lines Scandi (Scandinavian) or Skagit (developed by NW Fly fishers) are typically measured in grains. I won't go into detail as to how these weights are distributed along the length of the line, but they are... and they usually point to an aggressive weight forward scenario for casting big flies and sometimes sink tips for steelhead and salmon using a two-handed rod. These rods will specify the optimum range of weight, e.g. 500 gr +/- 50 ( a range of 450 to 550 grains) just ahead of the cork at the base of the rod (where you would expect to see a 7/8. I hope this helps.

About Scientific Anglers

Scientific Anglers was founded in 1945 by friends and fellow fishermen who introduced the first modern plastic-coated tapered fly line to the market, a revolutionary design in the fly-fishing industry. Scientific Anglers fly lines continued to break new ground with the introduction of the first contemporary floating and sinking fly lines, and Scientific Anglers fly rods cemented the brand’s focus on developing leading-edge technologies that set the industry standard. Scientific Anglers’ commitment to designing and producing the best possible equipment has defined the sport’s history and continues to shape its future, allowing beginning and expert anglers alike to make the most of every cast.
