TRADITIONAL SPEY LINES

Anglers that favor longer rods and less stripping in running line will often prefer TRADITIONAL SPEY LINES over Skagit or Scandi style shooting heads. These longer heads allow the angler to aerialize more line for long casts without stripping in line. These old school lines tend to be a bit trickier to cast but the reward is great.  You'll get long beautiful loops and effective swings WAY out there and you won't have to strip in 40' of running line to do it. We encourage everyone to try it and practice your casting before you hit the river during the peak of the run. It requires a bit of touch to get these longer heads to perform. Its good game.

RIO InTouch Shorthead Spey Fly Line




The InTouch Short Head Spey line from RIO is a very easy casting, traditional style Spey line with a short head that is ideal for Spey casters moving up from easier casting Scandi and Skagit heads. The head length varies between 40 ft and 50 ft, depending on line size, and it is a great choice of traditional Spey line for anglers using shorter rods and when fishing in tight quarters. The line has an integrated running line built in, and is an interchangeable tip style line - meaning the front 15ft floating tip is attached to the line with a loop-to-loop connection, allowing anglers to switch tips according to water conditions and guide recommendations. RIO recommends the 15ft InTouch replacement tips as the best options for this. The line is built with RIOs ultra-low stretch ConnectCore for the very best in efficiency and load.

The line has the following head specifications:

  • 5/6 - 40ft, 430gr
  • 6/7 - 42ft, 470gr
  • 7/8 - 44ft, 520gr
  • 8/9 - 46ft, 580gr
  • 9/10 - 48ft, 650gr
  • 10/11 - 50ft, 730gr
