Spey Tips

Matching Sinking / Floating Tips

Choosing the right tip is as crucial as choosing the right Fly Line. The chart below is a good place to start understanding the right tip for the grain weight of your rod - however - do remember to vary your tip size depending on fly size and weight, along with the depth required and water height / flow.

 InTouch "T" Tips

A level fast sinking line that can be cut to the length of your preference. These do not have any taper so they have more punch and are better for casting larger flies. The number refers to the grains per foot. The bigger the fly and the deeper you want to go the heavier tip you should use, provided your line has the ability to cast it. As a general guideline, the length of the tip you fish should not exceed the length of the rod.

MOW / iMOW Tips

Perfect for Skagit heads, extraordinarily easy to cast. Most are 10 foot in length which allows for a very efficient casting stroke. As a general guideline, the length of the tip you fish should not exceed the length of the rod, thus making these perfect for Spry rods that are between 11 and 14 foot in length.

MOW Tips - Have a floating back section (if dual density)

iMOW Tips - Have a intermediate back section. Tend to fish slower ad deeper than MOW and are generally the best choice between the two.

10' Sink Tips

Ideal for shorter rods, tight casting situations, or smaller rivers. Have a tapered front end that allows for a much better presentation than level tungsten ("T") tips. Have welded loops on both ends for easy attachment. Available in numerous sizes and densities and go from a #5 to #9 to best match the line weight they are being attached to. Available in four densities; Floating, Intermediate, Slow Sink (Type 3), and Fast Sink (Type 6).

15' Sink Tips

Have a tapered front end that allows for a much better presentation than level tungsten ("T") tips. Have welded loops on both ends for easy attachment. Available in numerous sizes and densities and go from a #7 to #10 to best match the line weight they are being attached to. Available in four densities; Floating, Intermediate, Slow Sink (Type 3), and Fast Sink (Type 6).
