RIO Trout MAX Skagit Head

RIOs new Skagit Trout Max Heads are designed for two-handed fishing for trout.
These are crazy short heads. We were kind of weirded about by the fact that they are only 11' LONG!! WT? Are you kidding me? We got over it fast. Yes, its unconventional but it allows you to fish with RIO Light MOW Tips which are essentially fly line so the system casts about 21' plus 5' leader = 26' total line with so much ease its not even funny. You can use a patient sustained anchor and plop big sculpin patterns out in the water with even the lightest trout spey rods. It is a great line, super good casting, don't be afraid of the 11' head hahahah!

RIO's Skagit Trout Max Head's 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 RIOs ultra-low stretch ConnectCore for the maximum in bite detection, hook-ups, and straight up catchin!
