Rio Skagit Spey Lines

Rio Skagit Spey lines are short, ultra powerful Spey lines with a thick front end that is designed to easily cast large, heavy flies and fast sinking tips. These heads are also an excellent tool for windy days, and making long casts with minimal space for a D-loop. We stock two different types of Skagit heads: a full floating Skagit Max and an intermediate based iFlight. Each head requires a running/shooting line and a front tip. Rio also provide a new ready to go Max Versitip |Kit with a balanced shooting line.

SKAGIT CASTING requires a line with a very short heavy head that propels heavy sink tips and big flies great distances with a very short casting stroke. This casting method is easy for novice or experienced casters to learn. When casting these lines the total head length should be matched to the rod; the total head length including the sink tip should be no more than 3 -31/2 times the length of the rod, with many anglers now prefering a setup somewhere just below this length.

RIO Skagit Trout Max Fly Lines 225, 250, 275gr

RIO’S SKAGIT TROUT MAX heads are designed for two-handed fishing for trout
Their mass distribution allows for easy, sustained-anchor casts with sink tips and weighted flies.
Coupled with floating tips and long, tapered leaders, the heads delicately present nymphs and
soft hackles. The short length makes them fantastic tools for casting in the tightest of quarters and
also well-suited for a wide range of fly presentation techniques, including stripping, jigging and the
traditional downstream swing.
Though primarily designed for light two-handed and Switch rods, these heads also perform
exceptionally well on single-handed rods. Just step up 3 sizes for the correct loading - in other words,
use the #2 Skagit Trout Max on a 5wt
single handed rod, the #3 Skagit Trout Max on a 6wt single handed rod, and so on. These heads
are built on RIO’s ultra-low stretch ConnectCore for the maximum in bite detection, hook set and fish
playing efficiency.
