Product Description

The Oracle Skagit rod has been developed specifically for use with heavy short head shooting head and Skagit lines. The shorter rod length with increased power within the blank will help cast these heavy lines/tips/flies when casting in powerful water and or restricted by bankside obstacles.

Short, heavy skagit fly-lines often intrigue fishers accustomed to to long-headed spey lines. The skagit fishing style pairs up particular gram weight Skagit lines rather than the outdated AFTM rating but this rod is also very capable of casting a short shooting head (ideally 38ft 34-38g) or a short Spey line.

The Oracle Skagit is a little stiffer than its sister, the Oracle Scandi rod, this stronger spine helps when casting bigger flies and heavier fast-sinking (tungstern) tips.

    When to use Skagit Rods and Lines
  • When you need to use heavy flies to reach fish in deep and fast water
  • In confined spaces where you need to form a small D-Loop, which is best created with a short headed line and short rod
  • When you want to strip a fly across a pool. Having been stripped, the short head can be quickly lengthened ready for the cast, unlike a long head
  • A skagit line can help when teaching beginners as a novice can easily feel its weight flexing a rod

  • Blank construction - 36/40T carbon.
  • Handle Construction – AAA cork.
  • Reel seat – Aluminium.
  • Guide type – Lined single leg
