We've been asked to develop this one for a while now, at 11 feet for a 4 weight (Spey) the 411 is the perfect short Spey rod for trout fishing. Call it a Switch, a short Spey, Trout Spey - whatever, the 411 is perfect for swinging short head Spey lines for trout.

*(Studio Built 411 Trout Spey will follow next week! - so stay tuned!)

4wt Trout Spey : 300-350 grains

Ground ferrule system
In addition to the industry leading technology used in each of our blanks, Epic carbon fibre fly rod blanks feature our proprietary SureFit™ ground ferrule system.

Sections are so precise they can be swopped out in case of breakages.

NEW Scientific Anglers SPEY LITE SKAGIT HEAD

Designed for light double-handed duty and with a short, powerful taper, the Lite Skagit is ideal for smaller streams and trout Spey applications. Available in grain weights from 150-360, this two-colored shooting features a black marker at the end of the head that serves as a visible notification on where to begin your cast. Works perfectly with our SONAR Sinking Leaders and textured TC Tips. From dredging for steelhead to swinging streamers for trout, the Skagit Lite is Spey on a smaller scale.
