Miguel – You sure can use Skagit heads to fish smaller flies! This is something I do a lot as at times I can’t be bothered to switch heads when smaller flies are called for. I always recommend customers start with small to smallish flies when beginning as it makes casting a bit easier when getting going. I really like using a Skagit head with an intermediate tip when fishing in the top of the water column. Good stuff!

Dylan – Oh yes, this will become an after hours program. This has been discussed.

The only thing that would help this would be a few whiskies! :P

Love your videos, thanks for you work reaching out to people just getting started with two-handed rods. I have a question about spey casting and the whole Scandi/Skagit discussion. I understand that Skagit lines are easier for casting larger flies. Can one also just use a Skagit line for casting small flies? If so, what is the drawback? I assume that using a Skagit line for such purposes is going to involve stripping in line more often than with a Scandi line. Is this correct, and, if so, is this the only drawback?

Nice stuff you guys are presenting. My only issue is why can’t Jon look as handsome as will and me. Next time I am in the shop I will bring my fly tying scissors and give Jon a haircut so so he looks as clean cut as Will and me.
