OPST Micro Tip - 5 feet !

5 FOOT MICRO TIPS
On the short end of the spectrum are our 5 foot Micro Tips. These 40 grain tips come in S2, S4, and S6, for Riffle, Run and Bucket. These tips are for true micro applications, rods under 9 feet long. That being said, we have used them with good results on 10 foot rods. But most users will find that these tips work best on 6 to 9 foot rods. These tips work best on rods from 2-weight to about a 6-weight, or about a 150 grain to a 225 grain Commando Head.

These sinking tips allow you to penetrate deeper into the water column, whether you are making a swung fly presentation or stripping flies. They allow for spey-style presentations on single hand rods. OPST has fished these tips with great success for rainbow trout, sea run cutthroat and smallmouth bass. The tips perform equally well in fresh and salt water. For all of those fish, streamers are extremely effective, and a sink tip is one of the best ways to present them. Depth is often key to catching fish, and the Riffle, Run and Bucket Commando Tips will help you get down to where fish are holding. They have low-stretch cores for quick and effective hook sets, and are a key component of a Skagit fisher's tool kit.
