OPST Micro Skagit & Pure Skagit Two-Hand Rods designed by Ed Ward

Ed has created a rod that gives the caster a boat load of “feedback”. This is the soul of a rod that lets you know through your hands when the rod is working for you.  These rods feel lively when fighting a fish and light in hand for an enjoyable day on the water.

OPST MICRO SKAGIT TWO-HANDED RODS

The Micro Skagit category consists of three rods rated to cast 250 grain heads or lower.

Their tapers have been designed to pleasantly accommodate both single-handed Spey/Skagit-type casts and two-handed Spey/Skagit-type casts.  Whether you’re picking apart small to medium-sized rivers on foot swinging soft hackles, chucking big streamers, or casting big dry flies into the teeth of an afternoon breeze, these nifty little hybrid rods should have a permanent place in your quiver. The 9’9” #3 and 10’0″ #4 both have cigar-style single-welled upper grips and switch-style lower handles, while the 10’4” #5 has a grip/handle configuration like the Pure Skagit Rod style as outlined in the next section. 

PURE SKAGIT

OPST PURE SKAGIT TWO-HANDED RODS

The Pure Skagit Rod line-up differs from the Micro Skagit line-up by being more focused to Spey/Skagit-type casting while in fact using BOTH hands for casting.

Represented by a 10’8” 6wt, an 11’ 7wt, an 11’6’ 8wt, and a 12’3” 9wt, they depart from the Micro Series in a couple of ways.  First, the upper grips are double-welled and thus more aligned with contemporary two-handed rods under 12’, while the lower handles remain switch-style. Also, these rods are faster than the Micro series, being a true medium-fast action that casts off of the upper third of the taper. This type of taper loads very well during the sweep phase of the Spey/Skagit casting sequence and also helps maintain that load into the forward cast, yet still yields a very crisp final delivery. This rod line-up is targeted toward the fishing of large Trout and Sea-trout, Steelhead, Atlantic Salmon and Kings.
