AA Pro Vise

If you're looking for a line that casts like a Skagit Compact, but wishes like a straight floater, the Rage Compact is the line you're looking for.
Skagit lines were originally developed by the steelhead rats of the Pacific northwest to get flies in front of fish regardless of environment. These short, high power heads have the ability to make a cast in tight confined spaces, which often means the difference between success and failure. As with any line, the shorter the head, the more critical the weight.
The Skagit Intermediate gets you below the surface and into more even, mid-strata flows, allowing for a smoother, more direct fly presentation.
Protect your stripping fingers from fly line abrasion and clean the line at the same time with the patented Stripee.
