The Airflo Delta II WF Spey line
I've mainly been fishing Scandi and Skagit heads this fall so it was nice to be out with a WF Spey line.
The Airflo Delta II is a redesign of the old mint coloured Deltas and it rolls together both the Delta and the Delta Long in concept.
At the 7/8 wt. end of the scale, the head is only 51' long, but it goes up in 5' increments up to 66' for the 10/11 wt. This way the length of the head matches the most likely length of the rod being used to cast it. The line also comes in a full line and a head version which you can attach to your favourite running line.
Yesterday I used a 10' fast sink Salmon/Steelhead Polyleader, which the line turned over with ease.
In this day and age where everyone wants a shooting head, having a longer line in cold weather keeps the ice off the guides and the cold water/ice away from the hands.
