The Airflo F.I.S.T. line (Floater, Intermediate, Sink-Tip) is a new Skagit head that is roughly two thirds sinker. It enables us to fish fast runs more slowly, swing slowly in the cold, plus get deeper when needed…Peter Charles Hooked4life Fly Fishing full blown excellent Review!
Here are a few random neural firings I experienced when I used the Airflo Skagit F. I.S.T.
1) Don’t use the FIST with a heavy sink tip and weighted fly unless you really want to get deep, OR…unless you really, really enjoy losing flies.
2) It casts nice with a 15′ type 3 sink tip and moderate fly on a 13’6″ rod.
3) There seems to be a slight learning curve to get my timing right.
4) It flies far once you get your stroke dialed.
5) It’s really fun to cast!
6) The Airlo FIST might be even more fun with a lighter head for Scandinavian Casting.
7) Sure would be cool to see it come out in lighter grain weights.
8) Just how deep do I really need to get?
Buy Arflo Skagit Fist from Fin N Fire (My local fly shop in Redmond Oregon)
