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 - 10 FEET-4 PIECES - 16 GRAMS/247 GRAINS
The rod is extremely powerful and yet so light and easy to handle at the same time. This is our preferred choice for rifling hitch and dry fly fishing for spooky salmon and sea trout, especially on shallow water. The rod will give you superior line control, delicate presentations and will help you perform “just that” long cast when you really need it. Match this with a WF shooter of 16 grams/247 grains and you will feel like you’re in heaven.
Line and reel recommendation:
WF line - 16 grams/247 grains
Logic heads - 16 grams/247 grains
Short-cut heads - 16 grams/247 grains
Logic RL. 0.028
Salmologic reel size no. 2
