The Airflo Skagit Intermediate is a new concept in Spey casting that will change the game of swinging flies for anadromous fish. By building a Skagit head with a short floating rear section coupled with an intermediate body, we took the ease of casting a Skagit head and combined it with the effectiveness of an intermediate Scandi. Although we designed it originally for steelhead anglers in the Great Lakes, it’s quickly becoming a viable tool for West Coast steelhead and salmon, and Atlantic salmon fishing worldwide.

I thought I’d share my thoughts on the design of the line. If you've used the Skagit Intermediate, please leave a comment. -I'd love to hear your feedback!

Can you explain when you would use the Airflow Skagit Intermediate as opposed to say the Airflow Rage or a scandi line?
