Scientific Anglers Spey Lite Scandi Heads

Scientific Anglers


Scientific Anglers Spey Lite Scandi Heads are short, floating heads for single-hand, switch, or light Spey rods. These little Scandi heads are great for swinging soft hackles or traditional wet flies on your favorite trout stream or light steelhead action.  Attach the head to a thin running line and add a tapered leader roughly the same length as your rod or a Polyleader and you are ready for action.  The SA Spey Lite Scandi Heads are just the ticket for single-hand or switch rod Spey casting, especially when fishing in tight quarters.

Here is what Scientific Anglers has to say about their Spey Lite Scandi Heads:

Introducing our Spey Lite collection, and the Scandi Head. Designed for light double-handed duty and with a relatively long front taper for more delicate deliveries, the Scandi Head is ideal for smaller streams and trout Spey applications. Available in grain weights from 180-420, this two-colored head features a textured, black marker at the end of the head that serves as a visible notification on where to begin your cast. From riffling dries for spring steelhead to swinging streamers for trout, the Spey Lite Scandi Head is Spey on a smaller scale.

  • Short head for quick casts and line control
  • Excellent line for swinging soft hackles, light streamers, and can be used as a dry-fly line with long leaders
  • Longer front taper for lighter, softer presentations
  • Designed for use with a shooting line on shorter two-handed rods and single-handed rods 
  • Braided multifilament core; for use in moderate and cold climates
