My idea for the Skyborn series took more than three years to evolve and was and based on more than 32 years of fly casting, instruction and fly fishing experience. Finding the perfect combination of carbon fibers to build equally perfect blanks takes a lot of time and a lot of prototypes. Unfortunately, there is no short cut to find the perfect action in a blank. When designing Skyborn, salmologic’s first high-end rod series, I worked painstakingly and diligently in order to make them as good as they could possibly be – using the very best materials that are available for fly rods today.
SKYBORN - 11 FEET-5 PIECES - 16 GRAMS/247 GRAINS
The lightest switch rod in the Skyborn series - it doesn’t matter if you cast single hand or double hand, overhead or spey. You will always experience the ultimate fusion of possibilities. This rod is a perfect choice for minor sea trout- and salmon rivers. If you don’t want the fish to know you are there, well this is it!
Line and reel recommendation: WF line - 16 grams/247 grains, Logic heads - 16 grams/247grains, Short-cut heads - 16 grams/247 grains, Logic RL. 0.028
Salmologic reel size no. 2
SKYBORN - 11 FEET-5 PIECES - 20 GRAMS/308 GRAINS
This is the world’s lightest double hand rod because it casts with only 20 grams/308 grains. When conditions call for long and delicate casts using extremely light leaders and flies for summer salmon, sea trout or steelhead, there is no better choice than this 11’ 5-piece rod. This rod is the “one” fly rod that remains in our heart and mind as perhaps the greatest of all fly fishing rods - especially when covering low water pools or fishing smaller rivers with larger fish.
