The Story

Mission Skagit Heads are designed to deliver large flies and sink tips when fishing two-handed rods. These are short and powerful shooting heads. They load easily and do not require a lot of room behind you to get the necessary casting stroke to send these heavier setups to their intended target. These lines are preferred for anglers trying to get flies swinging deep. They are extremely versatile lines, easy to cast, and can be applied to many two-handed scenarios. The Skagit heads should be paired with our Mission Running Line and Mission Tips to complete the kit. Multifilament core, two welded loops for ease of rigging, and rear of head is colored orange to easily identify the transition from running line to head for ideal casting load point.

Skagit Heads: 260gr – 420gr heads designed for rods generally up to 12'. Skagit Heads: 450gr – 640gr heads designed for rods 12' and longer.

Made in USA.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The good the bad and the ugly. Fished the Skagit on my Mission 13' 6", love how it feels, really easy to cast and throws a nice tight loop. Hate the color, the dark olive green virtually disappears in the water so it is very difficult to follow your swing and equally difficult to see when setting your anchor. Spey lines need to be seen in all conditions, particularly low light conditions. The butt sections is bright orange which helps somewhat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Switch Rod Dream Skagit Head! Read about the new Mission Skagit Heads, Tips, and switch rods and couldn’t wait to try the 360 grain head on my H2 7 wt Switch Rod. WOW! What a difference. Improved technique and distance. Made my spey casts much better. I use the Mission tips with the this head. I can see a new Mission Switch Rod in my future.
