The new Skagit Switch line hits the mark dead on. Shorter in length then the Skagit Compact, this new addition to the Skagit group of lines vary from 19’ to 20’ with 5 sizes ranging from 480 to 600 grains.
Designed to load fast action short rods in tight casting situation, move 10’ to 12’ of sink tip, and reach out to hit the “zone”. Looped at both ends for ease of use, the front loop has the line size clearly marked for easy identification.

The original “PVC Free” Polymer coated fly lines, we at Airflo utilize solvent free Polyurethane as the base material in all our fly lines. When we originally researched our coating technology over 20 years ago, we wanted the best possible fly line material available. A coating that would be stronger than our competitors, could resist DEET and ultimately fight off the long term effects of UV. Polyurethane provided us with this and much, much more.
Our unique permanent line marking system is welded into our factory fitted loops for easy identification on many of our shooting heads and our latest Ridge Clear fly lines. Each label clearly shows the lines weight and density – so, no more having to put your lines on the scale. Yet another example of our innovative solutions to everyday angling problems.
Not relying on solvents to make it supple, Polyurethane flexes better and lasts longer than any other material we know. Our new Flexi Loop system incorporates actual fly line core into the loop and with our unique fusing process, creates a seamless weld that really is bullet proof.
