RIO Scandi Short Bodies

The Scandi body is a short body to which a multitude of tips can be attached it is the most versatile design of all, and blends Skagit power with Scandi grace. It is ideal for anglers that want to travel light, yet have multiple fishing options. To the front end of the body anglers can attach regular 10 ft & 15 ft tips, MOW tips, T tips, iMOW tips or VersiLeaders, and with three different body densities to choose from (floating, intermediate and Sink 4), all water conditions are covered.

With the length of a Skagit at 23' and the taper of a Scandi these Scandi Short Bodies with different sink rates are one of the most versatile options made for the fisherman that likes to travel light yet have all water conditions and fishing styles covered. These are the bodies from the Scandi Versitip and the Scandi Short Versitip lines which have the tip included in the weight on there respective pages, for example the Scandi Short Body 7wt @350 grains is the head from the Scandi Short Versitip 7wt @425 grains and Scandi Versitip 7wt at 445 grains, they make it confusing don't they. You know that you like the 7wt switch rod with a Skagit type head grain weight right around 450 grains, maybe a little under or maybe a little over but right there some place is the sweet spot. So take the Scandi Body 7wt 350 grains Int. add Versileadter Int. and expect to be able to cast overhead a country mile from any beach and stay under the surface, not surfing back at you on the waves, or being affected by surface currents and wind at all. Take the 455 grain 9wt, yes right in the sweet spot for a Skagit head and a 30% increase in weight, add a MOW tip and a dead chicken and sustained anchor cast in any river where you need extra depth with a very sweet "D" loop from the Scandi taper. No need to tie on those heavy lead eyed hooks with the full int. or S4 heads. Want to play dirty fishing for trout in a lake. we have used a 3, 4, and 5 wt switch rods from float tubes or pontoons, cast overhead a mile, used the 255 int. with a versi leader and floating fly and counted down to the bottom so the fly floats up from the bottom. Any strip causes the fly to dart down to the bottom. Drives trout crazy. This exact same set up works all late fall and winter in the Yakima trowing streamers on the 3wt or 4 wt. switch rods bit light for sustained anchor on a 5 wt. switch and then again back into the single handed 7 and 8wt rods sustained anchor spey casts for steelhead . That is versatility.

  • Multi-purpose design, casts like a Scandi or a Skagit
  • Printed ID system on the rear of the head for quick recognition
  • Loops on both ends for fast rigging
