Skagit casting requires a line with a very short, 25-27 ft (7. -8.3 m), heavy head that propels heavy sink tips and big flies great distances with a very short casting stroke. Skagit casting is easy for novice or experienced casters to learn. When casting Skagit lines the total head length should be matched to the rod; the total head length including the sink tip should be no more than 3 3 ½ times the length of the rod. To adjust for rod length and loading simply add a Skagit Cheater to achieve the desired load and length.
